Ad software firm Nanigans has released its latest survey into Facebook ad impressions in the Asia-Pacific region and it reveals interesting contrasts in the social media platform between different APAC countries.

The study found there will be 1.5 billion smartphone users by 2019 in Asia-Pacific region.

This report is representative of Facebook ad impressions delivered by customers leveraging Nanigans advertising automation software to advertise in the Asia-Pacific marketplace. It includes ad spend on both Facebook desktop and Facebook mobile, and excludes Facebook Exchange and Instagram.

Data specific to each studied region is based on millions of dollars in geographically- targeted Facebook ad spend between September 1, 2015 and January 31, 2016.

The results for each territory included:

Australia and New Zealand

Click-through rate – 0.9%
Cost per click – $0.67
Cost per mille (CPM) – $6.00
Mobile – 79%
Desktop – 21%
Interesting fact: Using Facebook’s multi-image or multi-video carousel ads is a highly effective tactic. For mobile app ads, Australian Facebook users click on carousel creative 68 per cent more often than non- carousel creative. For link ads, the carousel format drives 128per cent higher click-through rates.

Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau

Click-through rate – 0.6%
Cost per click – $0.47
Cost per mille (CPM) – $2.82

Cost per click – $0.12
Cost per mille (CPM) – $2.54

Click-through rate – 1.5%
Cost per click – $0.11
Cost per mille (CPM) – $1.61
