Last week, Facebook announced the launch of a new advertising unit called product ads, which enable marketers to advertise multiple products at once on the social network. In addition, marketers will be able to target those advertisements to specific audiences based on their behaviors and other information — e.g., those who have visited your website, a user's location, etc. The move by Facebook is seen as a direct response to Google Shopping ads.
