I was in Novi Sad a month ago, for a week, and very, very few stores or restaurants have names in Cyrillic. Their main shopping center is called "BIG Shopping Center" and there's not a single store in it with its name in Cyrillic. There were some public signs in Cyrillic, of course, but even in street names, Latin was as at least present as Cyrillic. Most graffiti were in Latin. Almost all improvised notes (apartment for sale, I'll be back in 10 minutes, closed for holidays, lock the front door...) were in Latin. Of course, it's probably a bit different further south.
Okay I did not want to get too involved in this topic, but it seems I've been living in a different country entirely from what you guys say. For what it's worth, the majority (though not all) of graffiti around here is in Cyrillic. Likewise all the books and magazines I own are in cyrillic.
There's a giant Novorossiya mural in cyrillic on the building nearby. (not saying that's what I support, just describing)
a lot of the shops have their names in cyrillic.
It's true Vojvodina is almost like a different country in many regards, it was for a long time.
I think it's a continuum, if you go far enough to the south you end up in Makedonia, and over there they write entirely in the Cyrillic script.
