Facebook_Advertising_An_Easy_Guide_for_New_Ad_Dimensionsfacebook advertising ad dimensionsFacebook advertising isn't easy.

To do it right, you need to master:

  • Sponsored Stories
  • Suggested Pages
  • Power Editor
  • Who to Target
  • Cost Per Click
  • Cost Per Impressions
  • Correct Image Dimensions
  • and more

Not exactly simple for the novice user.

This is why we always turn to Jon Loomer for advice when it comes to running ads.

Facebook recently made some changes to the various ad dimensions across the site.

As always, Jon was the first on the scene discussing the changes & providing a handy resource for the new dimensions.

Now, instead of having to search around Facebook & Google, you can learn all the dimensions in 1 graphic -- which you can download/print/tattoo on your chest!

Well maybe not tattoo it.
