Ad Creative

Reference Docs

The Facebook family supports multiple advertising types across Facebook, Instagram, Audience Network and Messenger. Each ad has two components: The format (what it looks like) and the placement (where it will be displayed).

In the API, an ad creative is an object that contains all the data for visually rendering the ad itself, including:

  • Ad creative itself, defined by the visual attributes of the creative object
  • Placement that the ad runs on
  • Preview of the unit itself, per placement.

In this section, we document how to use creatives to help achieve your business goals. To see available ad creatives, visit Ads Guide.
