Facebook launched carousel ads a while back and most brands started using them to promote more than 1 product at a time, mostly. It was too good an opportunity for them, pay once, promote 4 products. But that is the thing, it’s not what it should be about, well not always anyway. So this week, we looked into more creative ways to use Facebook carousel ads, and some very cool ideas came up.

They could have, but they did not, they posted “popped up” pictures of their product and it looks awesome. And it works wonders, because it disrupts the feed among dozens of more, erm.. dull pictures from other brands.
