Facebook Canvas gives businesses a fully customisable digital space on which to build multimedia stories. Canvases open on the mobile from Facebook ads in the News Feed to reveal a full-screen experience where advertisers can use a mix of video, still images, text and call-to-action buttons to build beautiful and effective brand and product experiences on mobile.
