TALKING ABOUT THIS
Difference from search
Facebook Ads are integrated into the Facebook user
experience, meaning that advertisers can target potential
customers before they search, offering interaction and
engagement unseen on other advertising platforms.
With search advertising you target users based on what you
think they will be searching for. With Facebook Ads you
target using the information people share and enter in
their profiles. You can target broadly by demographic and
geographic preferences or you can get granular by
targeting people’s specific likes and interests.
Through a series of simple social actions, such as liking
your business’ Facebook page or RSVPing to your
event, people can quickly interact with your Business,
without ever leaving their current page. When this
happens, a user sees a friend’s name in your ad, giving
the ad a personal recommendation. Just like in real
life, recommendations from friends on Facebook are
really powerful. If a user sees a friend’s name in an ad
on Facebook, they are 68% more likely to remember
the ad and twice as likely to remember the brand.
