Value of Facebook's viewed impressions explained

Meanwhile Facebook has given an insight into how viewed impressions are delivering value to the advertiser.  Viewed impressions as common sense would suggest are ads that are not only served to the Facebook platform but are viewed by users.  By confiming that users are charged for only viewed impressions, advertisers can be confident in the fair value in their spend.

 

Facebook Safety
