Continuing our Facebook 101 blog series, today we will be discussing another of Facebook’s ad formats— Collection Ads. Facebook’s Collection Ads can be used to make it easier for people to discover, browse and purchase your products and services. A collection ad includes a cover image or video followed by four product images. When someone clicks on a collection ad, they'll see an Instant Experience—a fullscreen landing page that drives engagement and boosts interest. 

If you choose to create a collection ad for your business’ Facebook, remember these specs:
