A recent post by Jan Chipcase got us thinking about the implications of Facebook’s ad platform on the future of online advertising. Jan makes a strong point that making the creation of a targeted digital ad accessible to a mass audience will ultimately make advertising more simple and effective by educating a large audience on how targeting, measurement and costing of an online ad works. The increased transparency of the process exposes the value models of advertisers and media platforms to an audience that may have previously only been on the receiving end of advertising. Given its increasingly vast penetration, Facebook is arguably one of the best media platforms to mainstream online advertising.
