Afterwards, you have to create and test ad placements within your app or mobile website. Note that, Audience Network for Mobile Web is currently in “Open Beta”, as of May 2016.
“When you have published your app in the iTunes or Google Play store, we’ll start running live ads, visible to the public, from Facebook in your app.”
According to information gathered from Audience Network by Facebook help community, when someone uses your app and visits a screen with a placement, your app will request an ad from Facebook.

If I run an ad that is placed in audience network and it has a Learn More button that directs users to another website to register for a class, can the user also like and/or comment on my ad or will it only take them to the website? (In other words, does it open the Facebook app first and then take them to the website? I’m just trying to figure out if they would have opportunity to like and comment.) thanks!
