Facebook Auto-Generating Previews of Ads for Pages?

Posted by @DanHinmon, Mar 21, 2016

Some Facebook page administrators are seeing previews of potential Facebook ads for their pages in their News Feeds.

This article shares a screenshot of one of these previews. Have you seen anything like it in your organizations’s News Feed?


I’ve been seeing these for months in my personal newsfeed, which is a huge pet peeve. When I am kicking back on Sunday morning with a cup of coffee and checking out what my friends are up to, the last thing I want to see is FB suggesting that my employer buy some advertising! If FB wants to put these suggestions in my page newsfeed, I have no problem with that. (Of course, this all goes back to the discussion about FB requiring that admins use their personal accounts to manage a business page!)
