EditorNews Make a Comment

Facebook’s Audience Network is expanding to support more video. Facebook NZ, in a media release, says these video ads will appear both in-stream (pre-roll, mid-rol and post-roll) and in–article (starting with Instant Articles) from advertisers that want to drive brand awareness and recall.  

“Now businesses will be able to extend the reach of their videos on Facebook and Instagram to other apps and websites within Audience Network where people spend their time,” the release says.

Key Details:

  • The Audience Network will deliver video ads in both in-stream and in-article formats.
  • In-stream video ads could appear in three possible places: 1) during a break in the video (mid-roll), 2) before a video starts (pre-roll), 3) After the video ends (post-roll).
  • USA Today Sports Media Group & Daily Mail are two of the test partners for in-stream and in-article, respectively.
  • In–article video ads will appear between paragraphs of text and play automatically when at least half the pixels are viewable. For now, in-article ads are only available in Instant Articles.
  • This is the first time Audience Network will serve ads on desktop, allowing advertisers to reach people across devices
  • Globally, advertisers that opt-in to the Audience Network can generate 10% more incremental reach than using mobile News Feed alone.
  • People are watching more video, with 100 million hours of video being watched on Facebook every day alone.
