Facebook has announced that its mobile ads can now install iOS apps without forcing users to leave the Facebook app and launch the App Store.
Mobile app install ads drive installs by taking people directly to the App Store or Google Play. Now, people on iOS 6 can install an app without leaving their Facebook experience. When they click on an ad, the App Store will appear in another dialog box. After installing the app, they will be able to continue where they left off on Facebook.
