Facebook Ads Manager, Simplified

For years, Facebook has had two ways to manage ads (both Power Editor and Ads Manager). But now they have finally merged the two platforms! We are so pumped about this update and wanted to share the news with you, so you can be ahead of the game in learning the new system! Last month, Facebook began rolling out this change with a different advertising interface, but more streamlined to make it easier than ever to manage Facebook Ads.

Over the past couple years, the lines have blurred between what you could do in Power Editor and Ads Manager. It seemed like you could do most things in Ads Manager that you were able to do in Power Editor. However, there were still limitations in Ads Manager, which meant you had to switch back and forth between the two platforms to make certain edits. Facebook also kept making changes to the two platforms constantly. As you know, one thing that has made Facebook Ads difficult in the past is that every time you go to create an ad, the platform looks different and harder to navigate.

Hopefully with this new update, those days are over! According to Facebook, “this redesigned interface provides advertisers the tools they need to manage their business on Facebook successfully, no matter how complex, or simple, those needs may be. By combining Ads Manager and Power Editor we are simplifying Facebook’s ad buying ecosystem. This simplification reduces the tools advertisers need to learn and allows us to focus our resources on maintaining and improving a single interface”. You can see the full press release and a detailed overview of all the changes HERE.

Facebook rolled out their free training and certification program, Blueprint, a few years ago and you can get a “Digital Badge” as a Facebook Certified Planning Professional and a Facebook Certified Buying Professional.

We hope you are looking forward to a new, simplified way to managing your Facebook Ads! We sure are!
