In addition, it is necessary to proceed from the official website of the social network. The Facebook app for Android, iOS or Windows 10, at the moment, does not allow you to do this.

    Alternatively, slideshows can also be made for advertising purposes, using the tool Creative hub of the social network, which I will talk about later, again in the course of this guide.
