If you want to make some minor edits to your current running FB ad but still want your ads to run continuously, then you could use the “Create similar advert” option.
Editing the current running ad will send the ad for review and ad delivery will stop. The delivery status will change to “Pending Review” till the ad is reviewed by Facebook team.
If it is an important day (like a sale) and you don’t want your FB ads to stop, then it is much better not to make the minor edit to the current running ad. Instead, create a copy of the current ad and once that is approved then you can pause the current ad.
Normally ad approvals happen fast but sometimes it can take time, so if you do not want to take chances, remember to create similar advert.
