A few weeks ago, we started hearing rumors of people being able to promote their Facebook groups with ads. But in that case, that option was found inside of the group. It was a Boost button of sorts.
Now I’ve seen examples of this IN ADS MANAGER, which is a big development. I don’t have it, but someone in my Power Hitters Club community shared screenshots.
