Facebook Ad Platform: Revealed!

We’ve got our first images from Facebook’s super-secret marketing event, courtesy of never-say-never Dan Frommer — they’re stunning, and large, so we’ve placed them after the jump.

In the meantime, Dan has braced the crowd and extracted the following information:

Facebook chief revenue officer Mike Murphy is here. So is Nicole Haygood, a vp and interactive media director from draftfcb in Chicago, who stopped to chat: She’s excited to compare Facebook’s ad-targeting plan with the one MySpace has already shown off. A buyer from Starcom says he’s looking for big news, but not expecting any.

And here’s Facebook’s official release: Kickoff partners also include CBS, Chase, The Coca-Cola Company and Verizon Wireless
