Second, Facebook is constantly changing and improving to benefit businesses and customers. Take mobile devices for example. Over half of the daily Facebook users only access the social network from their mobile app. Knowing this, Facebook has adapted and changed their website, app and advertising options to be mobile-friendly. In addition, you have the ability to create and manage ads from your mobile device.
Facebook allows you to reach specific audiences by fine-tuning who you want to see them. You can base this on some general information such as age, demographic, location, connections, interests, etc.
In addition to those more general targeting options, you can layer more specific and motivated options. Some of these options are unlike those of any other social media platform. For example: recent purchase behavior, life events, income, custom audiences, and lookalike audiences. Facebook has an incredible amount of data about its users and allows you to utilize this data to get your ads in front of the right people.
These specifications allow you to be crystal clear on who you want to show your business to. Getting your ads in front of the right people will lead to more click-through and conversions for you.
