    I have talked to a few people and it seems that Facebook ads is going crazy right now. I made a campaign yesterday and set the total budget to 20. Today, I checked the same campaign and the total spent was $45 !!! Seems that Facebook is not giving a fuck about your budget. I confirmed with a few friends and they are all having the same issue. So, watch out for this! I guess this is a bug on Facebook end.

    Hi!
    I'd like to know which country are you targeting and from what country are you? I'm asking this because I manage large budgets in Facebook.
    Thx

    Yeah.. Some of my campaign did also over spend. But I don't think that's the biggest problem. After this messy weekend with 1000s of free clicks. It seam to me they are trying to make some of the lost money back with insane high click prices. I did pay from 2c to 8c on my ads, now(if) I enable them I pay 2$ a click. So I did pause everything for now. Hope this get back to normal. FB ADS are a big mess right now...

    Been experiencing a couple of issues lately. Set up a campaign and it spent my whole budget in a bout 2 mins, then set up another campaign and it's so slow with clicks, strange.

    Just to say but I passed with the same prob...
    So that I discovered that they put for PPE campaigns ( as defaut config ):
    When You Get Charged = Impressions ( should be post engagement )

    That's the diff and the main prob ( resolved from my side )

    Not noticing anything strange with my campaigns right now but I've experienced overspending in the past (my own fault, incorrect settings). I transfer the exact amount of the campaign to a pre paid card just incase.

    Post Engagement ads I have no problems with. They work as always. But when I do news feed or right side ads for web clicks. It get totally crazy.

    They reject most of my ads. I don't know why. No matter what I do they reject,but when I advertise same ad on another page, it gets approved.

    I heard that they can spend 25% more if they feel like the impressions are worthwhile. You seem to deal with different numbers here.
