Facebook ads are very dynamic. There are different types of ads having various formats and positions too. The various ad types include the Sidebar ads. The Sidebar ads are considered best for generating views and also for spreading awareness. Another type of ads includes the mobile ads. These ads are quite famous these days and used by most people as well as businesses. The mobile ads are considered great if you want to install various apps on your mobile devices like your mobile phones, iPad or tablets etc. Last but not the least are the news feed ads. The newsfeed ads are considered best among all.

News Feed ads are those ads which incorporate the brand messages like advertisements, promotional contents etc. directly on your social media profile pages or on your website. These considered as a prominent part of social advertising.
You first need to create these newsfeed ads in order to preview them. It is so obvious that they do not generate automatically on your Facebook page. You can preview it in the following ways:
How to Preview a News Feed Ad in Facebook’s Ad Manager?

You need to follow some of the following important steps if you desire to preview your created ads according to the actual set of procedures.
These steps are mentioned below
In order to start first you have to go to your ads manager.
On your ads manager you now need to click on the options of “all campaigns” and “all ads”. By clicking on these buttons you can see a display of all the ads which you have created. This particularly includes the ads which you have created and are those which are currently running on your Facebook account. It also includes those draft ads too which you have created but have not completed yet.
Now in order to preview any particular ad you need to select the specific ad which you would like to view. For this purpose you have to click on the name of that ad. By clicking on the name of any particular ad it will start to display on your screens with the settings on which you have already positioned it.
Check out the preview of your ad. It displays automatically on your screens when you click it. In any case if the ads you are clicking do not display. Then you can click on the eye icon which is present just next to it to view your ad.
You can see a long list of various ad placements just on top of the preview window of your page. Choose any of these ad placement options and apply to your ad. You can apply the selected placement option by just clicking on it to see the preview. Try to choose the appropriate one so that it adjusts well with your ad.
Make sure that your ad placements are according to your requirements while previewing it. Once you are sure enough that your ad placements are right and displays as you desire. Now you can submit it to Facebook in order to get the approval for running your ad which you have created.
In another case if at this time you do not want to run your ad on your Facebook page. Then you can save it as a draft for running it on any other time. Here I recommend you to get your ads approved as soon as you create them. It is better to get them approved at your earliest to save your time and effort in the coming time. You can get your ads approved early and then run it whenever you want.
