Lead ads allow you to run lead generation campaigns on Facebook and Instagram. You can create leads ads from your Facebook Page or from Ads Manager. When creating lead ads from a Facebook Page, you can use the publishing tools option for full functionality, or the Promote button with limited functionality. Using the Promote button requires fewer steps.
