The Question: My Facebook ads are still pending creation for more than two days? How long should Facebook ads be Pending Creation? What does it mean when my ad is pending creation?
Answer: use this fix if your ad has appeared for more than an hour
This message occurs when there are too many ads in your campaign already. Delete any ads that are on pause or unnecessary. Please note that your ads will need to be recreated until Facebook applies a fix to this. I have never had a Facebook ad appear in its creation step for more than 5 minutes.
This message appears above your first ad in your Facebook campaign and is displayed as “5 ads are still pending creation.” (the 5 is an x value) When ads are pending creation, it means they are in a query to be added to your ad managers campaign.
