Looking for the creation of a Full-Screen Ad Experience to attract and emotionally engage with the users while they are on mobile? You can now bring it to life with Canvas!


What are Canvas? 

They can be considered as a digital space on to build multimedia stories. Canvas cratives open from Facebook ads in News Feed to reveal a full-screen experience where advertisers can use a mix of video, still images, text and call-to-action buttons to build beautiful and effective brand and product experiences on mobile. Canvas make people moving through digital stories easily and in a enjoyable way. They can swipe through panoramic images and zoom in to view images in detail, making the Canvas experience immersive and engaging in a way that mobile sites aren’t. And Canvas uses the same technology that makes photos and videos load quickly on Facebook, so it loads as much as 10 times faster than the standard mobile web (source here).
