iSkin - Specifications
The iSkin is a large canvas ad that contains hidden circular interactive markers, which on hover reveal thumbnails highlighting content
such as videos, images, social media callouts, and other relevant information. This format transforms skins into a lean-forward
interactive experience and engages users to explore deeper stories.
Advertisers can feature up to 10 circular markers with a maximum of 5 on each side of the skin. The markers trigger rich content in
the clickable thumbnails and can link out to websites or social networks.
Please refer to the Skin Specifications for skin, super leaderboard and MPU guidelines.
