Imagine taking the engagement elements of a social media post – likes, shares, comments, and running your post on apps and websites using thousands of consumer data points unmatched by Meta?
Although Social Mirror ads imitate the look and feel of popular social media platforms, they are distributed across all devices and appear on multitudes of other websites and apps instead.
Each advertisement includes a second call to action link that leads to the advertiser’s website. It also has a link back to the social media platform it is mirroring. Any posts from your company account on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, TikTok, Pinterest, Snapchat, or YouTube are involved. Whether paid or organic, they can be used for Social Mirror advertisements. Display, video, and carousel ads are all possible.

So, yeah, we do spend time on social media, but even less than 80% of our time is spent elsewhere. This explains the popularity of Social MirrorTM advertisements.
