    Hi FB Marketing Pros,

    I've been out of FB game for quite some time and seems like the game has changed, a lot.

    Could anyone confirm if we're still able to scrape groups and create custom audiences using scraped IDs? How do you market to group users nowadays? :)

    You still cannot do custom audience with scraped UIDS

    It's dead. I've been running Facebook Ads for two years now. You can not scrape user IDs anymore. I create custom audiences using conversion data and website visits.

    Thanks

    When you set up your Facebook ad, you need to set up Facebook pixels. The first pixel is the base pixel to capture traffic to all pages and the custom pixel is for the website conversion which you will put on your thank you page if that is where your conversion happens. From your Facebook Ad manager, in the audiences section you can create custom audience using website traffic on a specific page. Enter your thank you page URL and save. That's about it. When you create another campaign, you can select that custom audience from your targeting.
