    I thought that normally people use things such as FB Leach Chef etc to create a custom audience, but I have noticed something different when I have used my personal FB account recently on my phone..

    If I have been looking up SEO then the ads displayed on my FB are SEO related. Last night I was looking at overseas outsourcing on my phone. next time I logged into Facebook the ads displayed were about a phillipines outsourcing company??

    How can I set ads up that work based on what users were searching?

    Thanks

    Not a change, more as a laser focus on audience interests as Facebook has less side and newsfeed ads.

    I think they are using browser cookies and some history related to your activity.

    Today I have actually seen a service in the Marketplace here, that are using FB ads show up on my private FB account. How can I target my fb ads to show up based on cookies from people that have searched websites in my niche?
