Many businesses use Google AdWords as part of their advertising strategy, but many are still warming up to Facebook Ads. An infographic from Ice Cube Marketing compares the two platforms, which—perhaps not surprisingly—have some similarities.
For example, each is a bidding-style platform, and bids can be manual or automated. Moreover, both platforms consider relevance when displaying ads.
Facebook determines an ad's "estimated action rate," as well, which is the probability that the targeted audience will take action based on the optimization event that you select, such as conversions, app installs, and video views.
