So you’ve decided to start running some Facebook ads or you need to freshen up your current ones? Well good news for you, doing a little competition reconnaissance just became a whole lot easier.
In Facebook’s latest move to increase transparency, you can now see the ads any Facebook Page is currently running. While these efforts at advertising transparency will help prevent abuse, it will also give companies like your own, a huge help in seeing what your competitors are doing.
How to see ads from a Facebook Page
To see all the current active ads for any Facebook page, follow these simple steps:
- Search or Select the page you’re looking for in the upper left corner.
- Once you’re on the Facebook Page, in the lower left navigation click the link labeled “Info and Ads.”
- You now have a full view of all the active ads being run by that Facebook page and anyone can see the ads you are running as well.
Hope this helps when considering or putting together a Facebook campaign. It’s so easy it doesn’t even feel like spying.
