Carousel Ads

This innovation was introduced by Facebook on its site to help brands further excite its customers into checking out their products or services. It features a series of images or videos that moves along the top of the screen.

With carousel ads, you can get more information out there and make the ad more interesting aesthetically speaking. Carousel ads can house up to ten images and videos each with their own link.
