Social Media Characteristics that Every Advertiser Must Know

Social media characteristics have very different than mass media characteristic. Don’t just plug your print media ads into Facebook ads. That is using Facebook ads and without using facebook ads feature. So consider character and feature of facebook ads character.

Character Facebook # 1: We Can Quickly Identify Audience Reaction

The viewer’s reaction to Ads on Facebook is instantaneous. While the reaction of mass media viewers more difficult to identify. This is because Facebook includes two-way media. You serve ads, viewers can respond to a thumbs up status or an ad, thumbs up or follow a page, commenting, sharing, clicking a link, clicking the purchase basket and sending a private line message.

What’s the point of knowing this for advertisers on facebook? By knowing this, we know earlier, one day is enough, how many viewers like our ads. How many people who are interested and purchased, how many are interested but they have the objection about price, range, and other. We’d better prepare a lot of ads, then check in a day, where the ads get a positive reaction. Advertising that provokes their interest to follow your offer, are maintained. Ads that do not interest them, can be stopped. Advertising that works well, which triggers the target audience to contact you and buy, can be forwarded.

Facebook Character # 2: Advertisers can collect audience data as well

This is a Facebook feature that gives us accumulative rewards from the work of advertising. We not only get results from sales but also get data about a group of interested people, which in the future we can lead to sales.

If you install a commercial status on a free facility, we can know the account that gives the thumbs up, comments and conveys the message through private channels, or can also contact WhatsApp us.

If you put ads on paid Facebook ads, in addition, you get you can search, find and collect people who love your product.

Character Facebook # 3: there are free and paid to advertise

When the definition appears, any mass media that reaches a large audience must pay to use it. Because the operational costs of the media are very large, then advertiser must pay to the owner of the media.

But in social media, anyone with an account can post commercial messages on personal status, facebook page (fan page) and Facebook group. It’s free with limitations. Facebook limited free account to reach to friends only who  interact, followers, Facebook page, and members of the facebook group. Facebook account cannot reach people who have no friend connection with them by free status unless your message is very interesting so there are friends who share your status.

Writing ads on personal status, groups, and pages (fan page) for free it has a weakness in terms of reach. The free ads only reach friends, group members and followers of the page (follower fan page). Paid advertising can fix this weakness.  Paying Facebook ads, or better known as Facebook ads can reach people outside the group members, friends, and followers of the page.

We use cookies to make advertising more engaging to users and more valuable to publishers and advertisers. Some common applications of cookies are to select advertising based on what’s relevant to a user; to improve reporting on campaign performance and to avoid showing ads that the user has already seen.

Google uses cookies like NID and SID to help customise adverts on Google properties, such as Google Search. For example, we use such cookies to remember your most recent searches, your previous interactions with an advertiser’s adverts or search results and your visits to an advertiser’s website. This helps us to show you customised adverts on Google.

We also use one or more cookies for advertising that we serve across the web. One of the main advertising cookies on non-Google sites is named ‘IDE‘ and is stored in browsers under the domain doubleclick.net. Another is stored in google.com and is called ANID. We use other cookies with names such as DSID, FLC, AID, TAID and exchange_uid. Other Google properties, such as YouTube, may also use these cookies to show you more relevant adverts.

Sometimes advertising cookies may be set on the domain of the site that you're visiting. In the case of advertising we serve across the web, cookies named ‘__gads’ or ‘__gac’ may be set on the domain of the site that you're visiting. Unlike cookies that are set on Google's own domains, these cookies can't be read by Google when you're on a site other than the one on which they were set. They serve purposes such as measuring interactions with the ads on that domain and preventing the same ads from being shown to you too many times.

Google also uses conversion cookies whose main purpose is to help advertisers determine how many times the people who click on their adverts end up purchasing their products. These cookies allow Google and the advertiser to determine that you clicked on the advert and later visited the advertiser site. Conversion cookies are not used by Google for personalised ad targeting and persist for a limited time only. A cookie named ‘Conversion‘ is dedicated to this purpose. It's generally set in the googleadservices.com domain or the google.com domain (you can find a list of domains that we use for advertising cookies at the foot of this page). Some of our other cookies may be used to measure conversion events as well. For example, DoubleClick and Google Analytics cookies may also be used for this purpose.

We also use cookies named 'AID', 'DSID' and 'TAID', which are used to link your activity across devices if you’ve previously signed in to your Google Account on another device. We do this to coordinate that the ads you see across devices and measure conversion events. These cookies may be set on the domains google.com/ads, google.com/ads/measurement or googleadservices.com. If you don't want the ads that you see to be coordinated across your devices, you can opt out of Ads Personalisation using Ads Settings.
