New Big Ads on Facebook

Larger Ad Types recently seen on Facebook, July 2011

larger ads on Facebook

I’ve recently noticed larger ad types popping up in Facebook. Strangely enough, a sales rep who works at Facebook didn’t know about these, until I showed him this screenshot.

The Facebook rep said that I may have installed a plugin allowing these to display from a third party. The ads are not from Facebook. At least one ad is being delivered by AdChoices. I suspect that these new ad types may be one reason why my organization is seeing less ROI on its standard Facebook ads, which look piddly in comparison.

I have been trying to Google how to go about purchasing these new ad types, but I haven’t found any substantive information yet. Does anyone know who sells these larger ads on Facebook? Do you even see them at all?

    Check if something called ‘facetheme’ is installed on your computer or as an extension on your browser. Uninstall it and your facebook will go back to normal.
