Facebook reaches 2 million active advertisers

Facebook is announcing that it has now reached more than two million active advertisers, up from 1.5 million roughly half a year ago and 1 million a year-and-a-half ago. In addition, we’ve announced the Ads Manager App to help businesses manage their ad campaigns on-the-go, through their mobile device.

Roughly 35% of US small businesses don’t have a web presence at all, but more than 30 million businesses around the world actively use Facebook Pages because they’re free, easy to use, and they work well on mobile. Below are three reasons more businesses are turning to Facebook to grow, Easy – Facebook’s tools are easier than ever to use; Mobile – The consumer shift to mobile is making more business owners want to use Facebook’s mobile tools to reach customers and manage their businesses; and  Effective – We’ve proven to businesses that our ads work: we want to make sure that every dollar they spend with us improves their bottom line. And we have the tools in place to prove it.
