    Hello respected members ,
    I came back to fb ads campaigns after long time , and i saw there was no option to upload fb uids to target custom audience in fb ads campaigns.
    It was showing that we can upload ids of mobile app users.

    1-So first thing is i dont even know what is ids of mobile app because i dont have mobile app for my site.So how will i target ids through mobile aps?
    2-And 2nd thing , is that mean that all my hard work from the years to collecting fb uids from the 3rd party tools is wasted now ? I cant even target people through fb uids from the pages and groups big list i have ?

    yes, they remover the uid targeting a couple of months ago so they are indeed quite useless in that regard, not sure about the mobile thing though.

    what method do you use to convert please? I have found some people willing to do the work on fiverr and upwork but it's nearly always not economical due to the cost.

    if face dominator or massplanner had this feature, rather than just providing facebook email addresses, it would be amazing.

    Should be easy to convert those with a php script.

    OK so since I am the GURU in this :)

    1. UIDs are no longer supported!

    2. @facebook emails are no longer supported!

    3. The only way to do custom audience is using REAL emails.


    Facebook takes your money now and using their system to target audience is a waste of money!

    I certainly bow down to your superior knowledge (which isn't hard, compared to me) but what is curious is that when i sent the fiverr / upwork guys 5 sample uids to see if they could provide REAL email addresses from them, they did so without issue.

    so there must be a tool or script out there that can do it. If a BHWer with skills to pay the bills were able to provide such a tool (that worked), I am sure they could cash in.

    i'd certainly buy it.
