Behavior analysis of your customers
In order to define and create advertising campaigns and improve the process of buying your customers, Facebook delivers tools to measure and study how your customers move in the store. For this you need to create and configure a data source called Facebook Pixel.
Have you noticed that sometimes it seems that Facebook or Instagram reads your mind when displaying advertisements for products you have searched online?
