Facebook Advertising – Creepy or Creative?
Are Facebook Ads Creepy or Creative? As marketeers you can use the plethora of information that Facebook captures from its users, to your advantage.
Facebook knows a lot about us. A hell of a lot in fact. It gains insights from a combination of sources. The main ones being the following:
- – Profile – Information the user has consciously added to their account
- – Activity – Information the user has provided in the form of previous Posts, Likes and Shares
- – Friends – Information from what the user’s network is doing
- – Devices – Your location (using GPS), device (mobile or laptop), browser etc
Whereas some consumers find this a huge breach of their privacy, others find receiving advertisements that are highly targeted and based on their interests refreshing.
From an advertisers perspective, Facebook, as a channel, offers a huge opportunity for marketers to achieve different types of marketing objectives. I have attached here a list of all of the Filters that you can use. I hope you find this useful (and don’t get too freaked out!)
