Facebook launched Sponsored Results Search ads, giving advertisers the opportunity for their app or page to appear in the search results when a user searches for something similar. We were surprised to find that actually far from being a poor supplement to standard Facebook advertising, it actually performed better at driving app installs than the standard ads.
On this momentous occasion, the European launch of Bioware’s latest instalment in the Mass Effect trilogy, we were disappointed to see an opportunity for promotion so wasted. In fact, we almost didn’t even notice the ad, as Mass Effect 2 has been out for 2 years now.
Facebook is going to shorten their ads so they can fit more in. Either this will give users a greater choice of ads and drive up clicks, revenue and general goodness for all (users, advertisers and Facebook) or the current good advertisers will have their ads lost in a blanket of poor ads and users will ignore the wall of ads completely.
