Big or small, platform updates alter the workflows people are accustomed to. That’s why it’s helpful to stay on top of the latest news as platforms like Facebook’s Ads Manager release new changes.
Marketing Land recently discovered some small updates coming to Ads Manager. Although nothing official has been announced yet, a new look for the interface appears to be in internal beta testing.
According to Marketing Land’s discovery, the navigation tabs located at the top of the Ads Manager interface may go away, with drop down menus taking their places. Marketing Land also reports that the editing panel located on the right side will remain the same.
Marketing Land notes that the new look will make Ads Manager “more intuitive” for advertisers who are accustomed to other social platforms, such as Reddit.
Joe Osborne, a Facebook spokesperson, told Marketing Land, “We’re always testing out ways to improve our interface but have nothing new to announce at this time.”
How to Stay Up-to-Date
To keep up with any changes Facebook makes to Ads Manager, advertisers have two primary sources where they can find the information.
First, within Facebook’s Help Center, there is a page where advertisers can see updates related to features and changes to Ads Manager for each month. The last month recorded was February 2019. No updates were recorded for that month. Advertisers should keep an eye out for the March 2019 report.
Second, advertisers can find release notes about Ads Manager updates directly within the interface by clicking the question mark icon at the top-right corner of Ads Manager. When clicked, the icon will open a small box with the release notes. The box includes an option to “View all releases.”
