Two hundred ninety valid answer sheets of young people aged 18 - 25 in Vietnam answered through Google Form are analyzed with SPSS 20 software to verify the reliability of Cronbach's Alpha, EFA, and regression correlation analysis. This research also uses the test of variance to determine whether there are differences between the demographic factors and the value of online advertising. The research results show that all five factors that affect advertising value, from the strongest to the weakest, are credibility, social interaction, informativeness, entertainment, and irritation. It is identical to the results of Ducoffe (1996). Thus, the research shows that credibility has the most substantial influence on the value of online advertising, whereas some other studies have suggested that that factor is entertainment (Tsang, Ho & Liang, 2002; Murat, Sibel & Ceyda, 2016) or value information (Cho & Choen, 2004). Especially the study also discovered that the ability of social interactions also has the affection with the value of advertising. This result receives the similarity from Ko, Cho and Roberts (2005) research. Simultaneously, the results also discover that demographic factors such as gender, age, and income do not differ from the value of online advertising. In the practical, aspect the results can help advertisers have a suitable strategy and improve advertising effectiveness. So that enterprises could attract more customers.
