Facebook is expanding the availability of its search ads
After testing “search ads” since last year, Facebook is now expanding the availability of the placement to more advertisers. This new placement option appears as “Facebook search” when creating campaigns for Facebook News Feed and there cannot run without running on the News Feed as well. Like all ads on Facebooks News Feed, “search ads” have a “Sponsored” tag above them and advertisers can create either as static images or carousel. There is currently no option to target people based on the specific keywords or phrases they use. Businesses that place an ad in the placement will have their ad shown when search terms related to them are used, hence if advertisers want to appear in the placement for a specific search term, they must make sure it appears on their Facebook Page.
