Objectives, where we can only choose Traffic, Conversions, or Catalog Sales objectives.
And, the carousel can only contain images, but not video.
Facebook shows conversions in your reports based on the time of impression and not the time of conversion.
Before you can promote a mobile or desktop app using the Traffic objective, it needs to be registered at Facebook for Developers. Both for iOS and Android. Basically, Registering the app creates a Facebook App ID that enables you to integrate your app with the Facebook SDK and App Events.

With the Reach objective, you have two options for optimizing how your ad is delivered: Reach and Impressions.
Do note that when we pause your campaign, the frequency cap resets and the frequency cap interval starts all over again when we again resume your campaign. E.g. FC applied is 2/week where we pause the campaign midweek and a user has already seen the ad two times, pausing and resuming in between will reset the FC to 2/week again where the same user might end up seeing the ad 4 times in the same week.
Reach and frequency lets you reserve campaigns up to six months in advance and controls the number of times your audience sees your ads, and in which order they see them.
Reach objective + Reach and frequency buying = 100% Optimized towards the most efficient reach available
Reach optimization in an auction will usually have a more efficient CPM than reach optimization in a reach and frequency buy with an identical budget, creative, targeting.
Brand Awareness is optimizing to get you the highest ad recall, not only reach. The Reach objective lets you maximize the reach of your campaign at an efficient CPM.
Three ways of buying can be done on Facebook:
Facebook Marketing Platforms – FB third-party partners who creates innovative ways to manage campaigns, they offer self-service tools.
Insertion Orders – Insertion Orders allow you to purchase advertisements from a Facebook Sales Representative. IO guarantees a specific number of impressions and requires minimal spending.
Facebook Marketing Partners help drive innovation on the Facebook platform. FMPs are experts in using the Facebook platform to drive results.
Target Rating Points (TRP) measure impressions as a percentage of the target population for an advertising campaign and are a core aspect of how TV ads are purchased and measured.
In the auction model, FC can be applied only with the objectives as reach and brand awareness whereas, under reach and frequency, FC can be applied for any objectives.
In reach and Frequency, You can only target one country at a time, no fewer than 200,000 people plus the minimum duration of the campaign should be 24 hours.
We can buy up to 3 months in advance under reach & frequency whereas we can buy up to 6 months in advance under TRP

Reach and CPM
Placement distribution (e.g., Instagram vs. Facebook)
Under reach and frequency buying, If we don’t submit any ads by the scheduled start time of the campaign, we will have a 6-hour grace period to do so before the ad set will be canceled.
A/B Split Test: You’ll have more conclusive results for your test if your ad sets are identical except for the variable that you’re testing.
Holdout test measures the incremental conversion lift of a specific ad campaign or all of your active advertising.
The ideal test period should be of 4 days, where we can schedule the test from 1 day to 30 days.
Facebook shows conversions in your reports based on the time of impression and not the time of conversion. For example, if someone sees your ad and then buys a product on your website a few days later, we show this purchase based on the time someone saw your ad and not when they purchased your product.
