Instagram’s blog post, “Expanding Stories Ads for Brands to Facebook,” explains the depth of the advertising.  When posting a Story on Instagram, you would just click to also post it on Facebook.  According to the post, “Facebook Stories is now an additional placement you can add to your Instagram Stories ad campaigns. This means you can deliver your ad in the same fullscreen, immersive environment on Facebook. Ads in Facebook Stories also support the same objective, targeting and measurement capabilities used in Instagram Stories ads.”

Essentially, the full-screen ads will be seen on both Instagram and Facebook.  They have found that potential customers respond positively to these types of informational ads.  It makes people feel like they are closer to the brand.

Don’t forget – these ads will cost you some money.  Fees can start at 20 cents and move up to $2.  So, be sure to carefully set up any Stories to match your budget.
