In the United Kingdom, the media literacy campaign reached 15 M users generating a positive lift of 5.2ppt in ad recall (users actively remembering seeing the ads) and a lift of 1.2ppt in reported behaviour (users reporting they check the content or source of a post before sharing it at least sometimes. Facebook lift is a test to measure the effectiveness of ad campaigns. It is based on an experimental design on Facebook, where we separate the total audience of the campaign into a test and control group. The lift percentage represents the difference between the test and the control group at a 90% confidence interval.
