Facebook prepares to introduce its Facebook Audience Network

Facebook looks all set to introduce their Facebook Audience Network, which so happens to be a new kind of network for mobile ads. FAN will open the door for advertisers to think up of better ads, where these ads will target a specific group of audience in order to increase its effectiveness. Facebook begun to develop the Facebook Audience Network in 2012, although it experienced a temporary delay as the social networking giant decided to concentrate on other initiatives.

Facebook is scheduled to unveil their Facebook Audience Network (FAN), a network for mobile ads that will enable advertisers to come up with better ads for a targeted group of audience. The company started developing the network in 2012 but delayed it for a while to concentrate on more feasible monetary initiatives.
