Report: Facebook to announce mobile ad network at F8


Advertisers are increasingly falling in love with Facebook’s mobile ad offerings, but a more powerful solution may be on the way.

According to re/code, Facebook will reportedly announce next week at F8 a mobile ad network that would allow advertisers to utilize Facebook data for targeting outside of Facebook. The company started testing this on a small scale in January and a few executives from Facebook Preferred Marketing Developers have said that an external ad network is the logical next step.

Facebook declined to comment, which is standard procedure for rumors.

Re/code described the rumored mobile ad network:

Facebook will pitch the ads to publishers and developers as a way to leverage the social network’s vast database of user information for better ad targeting. And Facebook wins by expanding its ad reach — now it can make money from its billion-plus users even when they’re not on Facebook’s own properties.
