- Enter the campaign for which you want to set this postback and for which the ad campaign is running.
- To generate the Facebook pixel you have to login into your Facebook business account. Under data sources, there will be an option for pixels.
- Next is the action source which is essentially the conversion happening so it can be your own website or email or application or any other. These are pre-defined by Facebook.
- Facebook Event - Type of event for which you are firing this conversion for. There is a pre-defined list and if you want you can create custom events as well. This implies that you would be required to just type in the event name and remember to type in the exact name with case-sensitive letters
- If you want to pass some additional data to Facebook you do that via a custom event.
- Facebook User data - "Facebook clid" is the essential data as part of this wherein the click ID is passed. These details will also be pre-filled, refrain from making any changes to these details. Since this will affect your tracking.
