Facebook also announced a new safety partner, Zefr. According to Facebook, Zefr, a contextual data company, will work alongside DoubleVerify, Integral Ad Science, and OpenSlate “to help ensure the brand safety controls and tools can continue to serve advertisers’ needs.”
Facebook Will Implement Limits on How Many Ads a Page Can Run in 2020: As part of Facebook’s latest Graph and Marketing API update, the company announced plans to implement limits on how many ads a page can run at any time. Facebook notes that the ad limits will impact “just a small percentage of advertisers,” but won’t share more details about the limits until early next year.
Facebook Rolls Out Responsive Ads With Multiple Text Optimization: Marketing Land reports that Facebook is introducing a new responsive ad feature called Multiple Text Optimization over the next few weeks. This new ad feature is similar to Google’s Responsive ads, which gives advertisers the ability to create, test, and optimize several alternative text options for headlines, ad copy, and descriptions all at once.

Facebook Brings Machine Learning Into Dynamic Ads Creation Process: Facebook is applying machine learning to help brands “automatically deliver more tailored ad experiences to each person” and create “personalized ads that can scale.” According to Facebook, this solution can be leveraged within Facebook dynamic ads created for catalog sales, traffic, and conversion objectives in Ads Manager or via the Marketing API.
Facebook Adds More Monetization and Management Updates for Video Creators and Publishers: In addition to expanding Brand Collabs Manager and Facebook Stars “in the coming weeks,” Facebook is also introducing a new data visualization in Creator Studio called Traffic Source Insights. With this new tool, publishers and creators will clearly see how their content is distributed across Facebook and be able to optimize for each source.
Facebook Adds Three New Tools for Fundraising: Facebook added three new tools to help non-profits raise funds across its family of platforms. These updates include Donate stickers for Facebook Stories and a “Donate” button for the Instagram profiles of nonprofit organizations. Facebook is also extending the ability to broadcast gaming charity live streams to more Level Up gamers.
