Now you might be thinking that what’s that? As per the description provided by Facebook: Creative Hub is a sandbox where agencies are allowed to play with the different ad formats for mobile and desktop and analysis which works best. I is found that most of the ad creations are done on Desktop and are experienced on the mobile. This also gives the opportunity to the ad creators to preview their task in a dynamic feed on mobile.  Also, they are allowed to share their mock-ups with the stakeholders through preview URL. The Creative Hub will also provide an inspiration for the easy-to-navigate option for the great content.

It might sound pretty good, right? But it was available only for the agencies and not for the everyday advertisers until now.

But this week it has announced that The Creative Hub is open for the entire globe. Now people around the globe are allowed to use this feature marketing community and advertising. And from the above para, you might have got the idea that it is pretty helpful and handy too.

So let’s see how it works.
