Facebook has released a Canvas API for Advertisers that can be used to create compelling canvas ads on Facebook. Advertisers can now create canvas components via API such as header, carousel, button, and text. Advertisers can add Canvas to any Facebook photo, video or carousel ad.
Companies are creating plenty of content on the social web, but not much of it ends up back on their sites. A new aggregator for social media, news and others sources is trying to change that. The company behind the Yolink API created Postano, a tool set to launch today that will let anyone curate a real-time newspaper-like site using Facebook Pages and Twitter streams. The resulting content, tiled on the page with extracted visuals, is available from a standalone site for free or can be embedded for a monthly charge.
