    Question: Do scraped facebook emails/UIDs still work for the sole purpose of creating custom audiences?

    Why?: I have 5k facebook emails/UIDs. I want to create one 5k custom audience. Then I want to create one facebook ad that markets to this niche -- I may send them to a squeeze page or direct them to download my app.

    Does this STILL work? Thanks!

    Yes, it's one of the major methods to generate sales and the best and the easiest one out there. Since, this is an highly targeted audience which results into higher CTR and clicks on ads, lowers the ad spent and gives you maximum sales.

    Hi IAmNotLegend,

    Thank you for the speedy reply. I spent two days reading these forums, and some critics believe that facebook will reject 'custom ads' that include scraped UIDs or facebook emails because they consider that they were attained illegitimately. Is this true? Can you say it still works from personal experience? Thanks again!

    The best way is to test and ignore the rest.
    What harm could come from 1 ad being rejected?

    Yes and no. I have used popular software
    targeting various things and have had my
    ads banned for scraping, but I have also
    scraped with alternate methods and targetted
    similar things and been fine, so its a fine line
    or balance between getting flagged and not.

    But yeah, for the most part it does most certainly
    work and can result in super low costs like <0.05
    per engagement with 15%+ ctr.

    In a recent thread, a reply made by an executive vip 'oxnobeef', made it clear it's not against ToS to use custom audience, if you scrap the UIDs after visiting each person's profile page ( she/he :) asked it from Facebook advertising )

    Test with a small size of IDs first.
