According to data from eMarketer, Facebook’s U.S. display-ad revenue should reach $2.58 billion this year, besting Google’s expected $2.54 billion in revenue. But for next year, Google is on track to hit $3.68 billion in U.S. display-ad revenue, compared with Facebook’s expected $3.29 billion.

Google’s display-ad growth is coming primarily from mobile phone use and the YouTube video service, and benefits from the company’s existing relationships with online search advertisers, according to eMarketer.
