0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Facebook announced 3 new sponsored stories for businesses currently using facebook ads. I haven’t been using the sponsored stories feature too much lately, because the normal facebook ads have been performing better for me, but these new types look pretty interesting.

Facebook Sponsored Stories?

Check out the picture below. The new “domain” story type seems pretty cool. If you’re running this version of facebook ads, when someone clicks the like button or share button on your website (assuming you have them there) it will trigger this ad to run on all of their friends facebook profiles. Pretty cool.

  • This is very cool. I took notice of sponsored stories when it first came out and even blogged about it but never tried it. The theory of targeted recommendations just sounds so tempting to me. I’m gonna definitely try this soon.
