Interestingly, the average price per Facebook ad increased by a whopping 140% in 2015. While the number of Facebook ads delivered decreased by 38%. The year-over-year increase in ads price was driven by a product change related to certain non-News Feed ads during the third quarter of 2014, which decreased the number of ads displayed but increased the prominence of each ad. The increase in price per ad was also due to the higher number of ads being shown in Facebook News Feed.
