When we a bold TV concept perfect for socialization and participation, Facebook and Instagram provided the ideal platforms to vastly extend the reach of our video and our audience’s excitement.
Facebook video ads fit into the newsfeeds seamlessly because they are seen as a story or post.

Thank you so much for this helpful information! I’m working on a blog that will be read by people in various countries. Will the links and credit work if someone, say, gets sent to the Amazon Japan store, but then transfers to the UK store and buys something there? Or would I have to guess which country stores the readers would use first, and have several links in my blog to all the various Amazon stores? How might I set this up most effectively?
