On average, Facebook says approx 100 million US people watch Showcase eligible content every month.
Showcase is now available for campaigns targeting US audiences and includes the following products:
- In-Stream Reserve– In-stream ads can come up either mid-roll or pre-roll. The placements are rolled in advance at a flat cost and delivered to Nielsen verified in-target audiences.
- In-Stream Reserve Categories– Comprises all the features that In-Stream Reserve has, and allows advertisers to find people who are within contextually relevant content. Categories are like fashion/beauty, entertainment, food, news, and sports.

Facebook underlines that Showcase can help marketers reach millennial audiences which are difficult to reach on traditional TV.
“Showcase can help advertisers reach younger-skewing audiences that are increasingly difficult to reach on TV. Over the past three months, 43% of people in the US who watched In-Stream Reserve-eligible content on Facebook were 18-34 years old, compared to 28% of TV viewers.”
The price of ads is fixed and assured to be displayed to a specific audience.
