What are Facebook's Newest Targeting Options?

Brands and marketers find themselves focusing more on paid social with some of Facebook's more recent algorithm changes.

Facebook Ad Targeting

Here’s something to wrap your brain around: there are more potential Facebook audience-targeting options than there are human beings in the world.

If you went through every demographic option, every interests option, every behavior option, connection, remarketing, and so on… it is possible to create so detailed an audience profile that you in all likelihood would develop an audience that doesn’t even exist.

In short, Facebook is powerful–arguably the most powerful marketing tool ever created.
