Native In-Feed Video

Q: Are the social share buttons customizable?

A: No.

Q: Can we track clicks on each button individually? Report by?

A: Won't track individually - track clicks (click throughs) and "shares" (twitter, fb, etc).

Q: What is the maximum video length?

A: There is no maximum length. However from a tech perspective, we recommend that the videos are limited to 30 seconds. 

Q: What are the copy requirements?

A: The requirements are the same as standard native per spec sheet.

Q: Is it possible to make exceptions on the 30 seconds recommendation? 

A: 1) For campaigns where completion rate is the main goal, we recommend the shorter the better. 2) For longer videos, the click to play is a good option because it means the user wanted to watch the video in the first place.
