Facebook Ad Formats

General Facebook Ads

To help you reach your desired audience, Facebook ads allow you to craft your message for your curated target audience. Facebook ads can be placed in-feed, on the right-hand column, in Facebook Marketplace, Instant Articles, and suggest video sections.

Sponsored Stories

Sponsored Stories are paid messages that promote actions a Facebook fan has taken while engaging with your brand’s content, such as liking your page or post, installing your application, claiming your offer, or checking into your business location. Currently, Sponsored Stories may only be targeted to fans and friends of fans.

Page Post Ads

Page Post Ads are ads you can generate from your brand’s page and promote post activity for that page. These ads can be used to acquire new fans and drive existing fans back to content on your brand’s Facebook page. These ads are highly effective at generating engagement and are increasingly used by retailers and other direct marketers to drive significant off-Facebook sales and revenue.

Mobile News Feed Ads

In essence, Mobile News Feed Ads are the same as your standard desktop ads, however, they are optimized for mobile versions of Facebook.
