Research on Social Shopping


I am a second-year HCI student in School of Information, University of
Michigan. I recently got interested in the topic of Social Shopping and have
done some search on several library databases. But not much has come up.

What % above the fold for ads?

Many years ago, I had some ad folks telling me that a 300x250 ad had
to show 1/3 above the fold (1024x768) to be sold as an
"above-the-fold" ad. It was some other fraction for a 160x600.

Either IAB.net doesn't have those details along with their other
specs, or I'm just not finding them.

Does anyone have a link to some kind of industry-wide accepted
standards or guidelines that answers the question: How much of the ad
has to show ATF before it can be sold as being ATF?
