Up until last week, Facebook had a rule that dictated that text couldn’t make up more than 20% of the image of your Facebook Ad. This was a strict rule, and they would usually reject ads because of it. Facebook provided a grid tool where you could upload your ad and see exactly how much of the image your text took up. If you kept text within the grid result of 20%, your ad was OK. Now that’s gone.

Low (which is actually higher than Ok)
