Today, advertising is the largest source of income on the Internet, and Google, with its Ads platform, is its king. On the other hand, Facebook also has an advertising platform, Facebook Ads, implemented to its system, empowered with numerous possibilities of segmentation and the great knowledge of human behaviour.
This fact, together with Facebook being the largest social network with nearly 2,000 million active users, and where we are spending most of our time, has raised the questions from the advertisers: Which platform is actually better to invest in order to acquire mobile users, Google Ads or Facebook Ads?
For this reason, in this post we will break down the main differences about the two ad platforms, so that mobile businesses of any scale and niche can, based on its goals, choose a platform that is more adequate for them.
The main difference between Facebook Ads and Google Ads lies in the behaviour of the users of these two platforms:
On Facebook users get connected with their friends and family, and they browse for the news and updates.
In Google Ads users are already located one step further in the conversion funnel, as they are likely to be looking for things they need or are ready to buy.
Having a full understanding of these differences, you can easily define how to use each of these channels for your business.
Facebook and Google have different ad formats to maximize the audience reach:

Display Network websites reach over 90% of Internet users around the world. It allows using an advanced targeting to deliver ads in specific contexts (such as “outdoor living”), for specific audiences (such as “young mothers” or “new car buyers”), at specific geographic locations, etc.
With more than a billion users, YouTube is available in more than 70 countries and in more than 60 languages, providing a wide variety of video content from around the world.
It has many different types of segmentation allowing to reach both niche and specific audiences depending on who they are, their interests and the content they see.
Universal App Campaigns simplify the whole process by allowing to promote Android or iOS apps on Google’s top properties: Google Search, Google Play, YouTube, and Display Network.
Facebook Ads platform covers ads that are displayed on both Facebook, Instagram and Instagram Stories:
With more than 1.940 million monthly active users, Facebook so far is the most popular social network worldwide.
There are studies indicating that with all the information we provide to the platform, Facebook can get to know us better than even our friends or family. And with all this data, Facebook Ads make it easy to reach any, even a very particular niche, that would be impossible to target in any other way.
Instagram is the most visual and mobile social network that ever existed. More and more users are connecting to social networks through their mobile devices, which makes Instagram Ads more and more effective.
Currently Instagram has over 700 million monthly active users. And it is the fastest growing social network, which has managed to double the number of users in just two years.
Google Ads UAC allows targeting based on:
Facebook Ads has the following segmentation options:
