    Hello guys. I couldn't find anything that would help on Facebook support page (I really did try to find it for a few hours). The problem is I got my ads approved and turned on, but they're not gaining any reach. It's not appearing on the feed. What could be the problem here? It's been running for 10 hours now.

    It happened few times to me, in the right section above your ads did you set to see "lifetime" for the report?

    There are a couple of reasons why this might happen

    1) Your ads have expired. This is the most plausible reason.

    2) The optimization you did has very limited reach and is not delivering huge followers

    OR

    your budget doesn't allow much coverage.

    3) For some reason it has selective reach due to product or anonymous feedback.

    I cannot say without actually checking what's wrong or your campaign but these are my best guesses.

    Sometimes it takes more time to start running it depends on your ads account (new or not) or if you set manual bidding. If it's the case I advise you to start with automatic bidding first before switching.

    The ad is new, it's active and the budged can't be too low, because there weren't any impressions and the predicted reach is a couple million people. I will leave it like this till tomorrow.

    I work with multiple facebook ads accounts and I just started a new ad yesterday on a fresh account and it took around 13 hours before I start seeing some movements. Slowly but surely!

    Well my impatience fucked me right up the ass. Facebook disabled my account because me fiddling with it too much and they got suspicious about it. So I had to provide my ID and all that other crap. Now I have to wait till they reactivate my account... Thanks for all your help guys, it was my own fault.

    Did you pick the right ad? Usually people who have low/no reach most of the times have picked the wrong ad.

    I took conversions ad. The predicted reach from the ad is 1.5mil people, so I should be golden with it. Will wait for a day or two without doing anything to the ad and if the problem persists I will try to contact customer support about this.

    P.S they reactivated my account just now.
