These updates not only strengthen the AI technology but also add features to optimize marketing processes for retailers, significantly enhancing Meta’s competitiveness as a marketing channel. Let’s delve into these updates with cacaFly to help your business thrive!

1. Advantage+ automatically optimizes ratios of ads

According to Meta’s advertisement data, the proportion of daily video views on Meta platforms (Facebook, Instagram) increased by 25% in Q4 compared to the same period. This reflects the market’s emphasis on audiovisual content. To address this trend, Meta’s Advantage+ has added a new feature to automatically optimize video ads to 9:16 ratios. This prevents material distortion or improper proportions, thereby enhancing user viewing experience.

Advantage+ Catalog Ads, introduced by Meta last year, collect user interests and provide personalized content recommendations.
