Charting the Effects of COVID-19 on Facebook CPMs


Our team began tracking Facebook CPMs to determine the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the digital advertising marketplace. Over the past two and a half years it has evolved into a powerful tracking and learning tool, enabling us and our partners to make informed decisions in real time.

Initially advertising prices as measured by the Cost per 1,000 Impressions (CPM) on the Facebook Ads marketplace declined to historic lows as many advertisers pulled back their spending, while usage and time spent on Facebook and Instagram exploded. Prices then rebounded above their early pandemic lows but have entered a new state of volatility as consumer behavior continues to shift.
