Facebook mobile app install ads – first introduced its Beta version in August 2012 – has been officially launched to all the developers on October 17,2012. These ads help advertisers to drive people to install their apps and also measure installs for their mobile apps and games.
In August, a number of major players like Kabam, Fab, TinyCo and BigFish got to trial a new mobile ad unit to boost app installs and found the ads to significantly raise their CTRs (Click Through Rate) and conversion rates.
In fact, TinyCo saw 50 percent higher CTRs and a significantly higher conversion rate. Now with these new ads, mobile apps and games of any sizes are capable of reaching the right audience, at the right time.
