Facebook Tweaks Polling and Event Engagement Ads

Facebook’s home page engagement ads are a central component of its ad product offerings to big brands, and as such the company has spent a lot of time developing and testing several different kinds of home page ads over the last couple years, including virtual gifts, events, videos, polls, and simple “become a fan” units. Most recently, it launched a product sampling home page engagement ad unit, designed to drive consumer sign-ups for things like food and cosmetics.
