Facebook has started to test out a new feature in Facebook advertising platform called “Suggest an Ad” which supposedly auto creates an ad copy by pulling in text and pictures from the advertiser’s URL that he wants to advertise for.
The “Suggest An Ad” button was first spotted by Jens Wiese in Germany, and it seems like the feature is in a very early test phase.
I logged in to my Facebook Advertising account and didn’t see that feature present yet. Facebook is known for testing out new products and features on a small subset before rolling it out to everyone, so I assume that this is another one of their tests.
While I am not sure if having this new feature will actually boost Facebook’s ad sales dramatically, but new advertisers might find this feature useful if they are clueless about ad copy and has no experience whatsoever with online advertising.
So I’ll keep an eye on this feature and will write about it again when I know more.
