Facebook doesn’t offer a way for advertisers to buy its ad network ads completely, so these ads are simply extensions of their normal Facebook ad buys. The only difference is that they appear external of Facebook. They still run in front of Facebook’s viewers and, more importantly to Yahoo, are sold at Facebook rates.
