    This has been driving me crazy over the past 2 weeks. My Newsfeed Ads have almost completely stopped running across several agency accounts. I've tried using new agency accounts and making dozens of new ads with all kinds of different parameters but nothing seems to work. The ads only spend a small fraction of my daily budget. I've ran these ads perfectly fine before. My CTRs are more than decent and my CPC is above the suggested range. The only thing that makes them run is setting a ridiculously large CPC bid (like $3.00), but I doubt CPC is the main issue as FB wouldn't increase their average CPCs by 300% over 2 weeks. I'm thinking this could be due to the recent changes in their Ad Platform but I know guys that have ads running just fine. Has anyone else experienced any similar problems? Could this be some kind of new soft ban?

    Hi Milan,

    I cant give much input as this morning was the first time in a few months I've decided to run a FB ad campaign. I am above the suggested CPC for my ad. It was approved within 10 minutes. 1 hour later I got another notification saying it has been approved a second time - Not entirely sure why.

    Now its been about 6 hours and the ad has still not been shown once, it just says "Scheduled" for today but doesn't seem to be doing anything!

    Regards,
    P

    If it says scheduled then you've set it to run at a later time. It will only start running when it says 'Active'.
