How to Check Facebook Ads for 20% Text Overlay
So I was trying to upload an image to boost on Facebook, when it highlighted “Your ad may not run” message. How to Check Facebook Ads for 20% Text Overlay tutorial is created in order to make you understand why it is important to maintain that Text to Image Ratio and how to exactly achieve that.
Facebook wants you to advertise something which is worthy to be advertised. If you put stuff that’s entirely covered with text, people tend to lose interest mid-way. Also, if your stuff isn’t that attractive to look at, there are chances people might not even bother look and scroll on.
