    Say for the Teespring angle, the names audience niche is obviously highly profitable right now to anyone who is paying attention.
    I have scraped names, both first and last, and after about a day (or less) the audience gets turned off by FB, they state that I cannot target name, age ect.

    That brings me to another question, how are people targeting the age niche too? IE: 'Vintage 1954 All Original Parts'

    FB makes the audience unable to be used.

    Check out a page called 'A Special Tee' for a good example of the name angle.

    Curious the way they get around this, I have some fresh ideas I want to hit the name niche with..

    Any ideas/answers are appreciated.

    I'm still trying to figure out the name targeting because i see a lot of name fan pages and shirts being sold but facebook won't approve my name ads.

    As for the age targeting i figured that one out. you gota use the feature more demographics then go to life event then go to upcoming birthdays. Once you do that adjust the age targeting to 1954 group or what ever you want it to be.

    Now if any of you guys figured out how to get around the name targeting please share. I'm dieing to know it!

    just grab the numeric ids of those names and add them to custom audience
