Facebook launch real time bidding exchange

Written by Kathryn | 14-Jun-2012 13:45:58

The recent announcement that Facebook is to enable real-time bidding on its ad inventory provides a huge new opportunity for direct response advertisers. It is now possible to buy audiences on the platform in the same way audiences are bought across the multitude of ad exchanges available. 

The sheer size of Facebook coupled with the time its users spend on site mean it is already an established element of the media mix, but the fact that advertisers can now pinpoint their audiences and buy them in real time puts Facebook in a very strong position.

Advertisers can use the data collected from their own website, enabling them to re-target non-converters through the Facebook platform. Although the usual Facebook targeting options will not be made available, advertisers can also overlay behavioural data bought through third party providers.

Our Kaizen platform is built upon proprietary DSP (Demand Side Platform) technology and targeting strategies to deliver improvement through continuous optimisation across all digital channels.
