Facebook Sets High Asking Price for Log-Out Ads: $700K a Day
Facebook’s new log-out ads are big, splashy and the closest thing to a traditional banner ad the social network has ever produced. They’re also pricey — similar to what it would cost to buy Yahoo, YouTube or MSN’s home page.

Facebook’s initial asking price for a marketer looking to buy all log-out page inventory in the U.S. for a given day was north of $700,000, according to a source briefed on the product before it was officially unveiled last month. That puts the unit in the same league as the web’s most expensive display properties.
Log-out ads aren’t available as a stand-alone purchase but are bundled with premium home-page ads that users see on their news feeds. The one-day ask to own the log-out page in the U.S. was $550,000 for home-page ads, plus $160,000 for the log-out inventory.
