As previously reported, Facebook announced that it has surpassed the 3 million active advertiser milestone, just six months after announcing the 2.5 million mark.
Read this for a look at the improvements Facebook has made to its ad offerings in that time.
In announcing the new milestone, Facebook also launched a new video storytelling tool for businesses called Your Business Story. The company says the tool "makes it easy to create a video that shows what your business brings to the world. Because we believe the best way to tell the story of three million businesses is to empower each one to share their own."
There's a site here where you can go to create your own video.
"In a few steps, make a video that tells people what your business brings to the world. Every business has a story. Let’s celebrate yours," Facebook says.
You can also see sample videos at the site.
Mark Zuckerberg said in an earnings conference call in January that there are over 50 million small businesses now using pages on Facebook.
Over 70% of businesses using Facebook ads are from outside of the U.S.
