Facebook's Ad Platform Disapproves Of Black Friday Ads
Facebook's glitch in its system for buying online ads has experienced outages and high disapproval rates just days before one of the busiest online shopping days of the year. The glitch: Black Friday ads are being rejected by Facebook, according to marketers. “We uploaded Black Friday ads for some clients last week that we're doing pre-Black Friday promos,” one marketing agency told Digital New Daily. “We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Ads Manager. We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible,” Facebook Business wrote in a post on Tuesday. “Campaigns that are life and running should not be affected and are still being delivered, although reporting is currently delayed. However, advertisers may experience issues creating new campaigns and making changes to existing campaigns.”
