Facebook has revealed that it now has over a million active advertisers. It's unclear exactly when the company hit this milestone, but it dropped the stat in an update in its newsroom, titled, 'One million Thank Yous".
"Over the past year I’ve had the privilege of meeting and learning from many amazing business owners who use Facebook," writes Facebook's Dan Levy. "Some have just set up their Facebook Pages while others are experts who share their tips with others. I’ve learned from companies like Ministry of Retail in Singapore, Springwools in Ireland, and Scene75 Entertainment Center in Ohio…and many more around the world."
"I know business owners like these invest their hard earned money and time into running their companies," he adds. "So today, on behalf of everyone at Facebook, I want to say thank you to them and to the over one million businesses like them who are active advertisers. You have chosen Facebook as a partner to grow your business. We appreciate the chance to work with you, and we celebrate your success."
These active advertisers, Levy says, are "real people with real stories," and with that, Facebook is inviting others to ahre their business success stories at a Facebook destination for entrepreneurs.
Much is going on in the world of Facebook advertising, and marketing on Facebook in general. In addition to the newly launched hashtags (which marketers will find many opportunities with), the company is simplifying its advertising offerings. For one, they're cutting the available number of ad units by over half. This week, they also announced some new features for page post link ads.
