Facebook adjusts video view metrics

25. 11. 2019

Facebook has been updating its video view metrics since late October. It is removing those that are linked to a 10-second video view, including cost per 10-second video view and unique 10-second video view. Another change being made is renaming eleven video metrics.

In July, Facebook began using ThruPlay instead of the 10-second view metric to optimize video view campaigns. This allows you to optimize and pay only for ads played to the end or for at least 15 seconds.

This optimization is available for auctions or campaigns with reach and frequency. Facebook has said that ThruPlay is more cost-effective and promotes brand growth. Now Facebook is removing the 10-second video view metrics.

Another of Facebook’s changes is to rename eleven video metrics. This is just a name update, while the metric calculations don’t change. The goal is to make it easier for advertisers to understand the success of their ads. Facebook explains that it made the changes to make the names clearer and more consistent.
