Next choose your buying format, it can be one of the following:
- Reach and Frequency
Auction buying offers more choice, efficiency, and flexibility, with more predictable results. Ads can be placed across Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and Audience Network. Audience Network Placements are available for all objectives.
