Facebook ads BIGGER than ever!!!
Looks like Facebook is really looking to monetize. First, they admit that pages that don’t advertise will lose out on organic reach…and now they announce that the ads on their site will be much bigger.
Interestingly enough, Facebook has been threatening a pages layout change for the past couple of weeks. Could be this new ad sizing has something to do with it.
The social media giant says that although ads will be larger, you will see less of them on your page (something tells us that pricing will go up as well – it’s been rising ever since their organic reach announcement).
It was announced that images for the News Feed and right-hand ads will show at the same dimensions that advertisers upload, but that right-hands ads serve in smaller size still. We’ll have to wait and see.
“The new look of the ads, along with their new distribution, is intended to offer a better ad experience on Facebook. In early tests we’ve seen increased engagement — up to 3X more — from people seeing the new design.” announces the Facebook blog.
The updated size will not affect your smart phone, only your desktop machine.
