Facebook introduces its own mobile advertising network

Facebook has launched a mobile advertising network at its F8 developers conference, giving app developers a new option for monetising their applications.

The Facebook Audience Network offers the same level of targeting as Facebook’s browser-based ads. It’ll be competing with Google’s AdMob platform and Apple iAd as well as services from specialist mobile ad networks including Millennial Media, InMobi and Flurry.

According to Facebook, it’s currently just working with advertisers looking to drive app installations or app engagement - but will be expanding beyond this in the future.

In a separate announcement, Facebook also announced an ‘Anonymous Login’ option for consumers using mobile applications that require a Facebook login. It’s now possible to try an app without sharing personal Facebook information with the app developer.
