Use existing content to create new ads

  

Use existing ads and posts to create new ads during campaign creation. This allows you to keep the social proof (likes, comments, shares) of the posts or ads and save on campaign creation time. 

You can choose any permutations, and test ad templates. All promotable existing posts and ads will show up in the Existing posts tab.
