Screen Real Estate

Let’s face it, sometimes images don’t work the same way on mobile devices as they do on desktop. Facebook Canvas ads will allow your creative messaging to take over your target audiences’ News Feed.

Canvas Ads NewsFeed vs Full Screen

This creative type was designed specifically to help businesses tell their stories and show their products on mobile devices in a full, beautiful way. Canvas ads open from the News Feed to show a full screen experience where businesses can display a mix of video, images, text and call-to-action buttons.

Templates + Facebook Creative Hub

Creating Canvas ads is a breeze with Facebook’s template tools. You’ll have the option to choose from several templates.

Full Screen Experience

  • Get New Customers: Drive conversions with a mobile landing page that encourages action
  • Showcase Your Business: Give people an engaging way to explore your business
  • Sell Products: Use your product catalog to allow users to shop from their mobile device
