With the assistance of the Facebook Pixel, we would also like to ensure that our Facebook ads equate to the potential interest of the users and don’t appear annoying. With the assistance of the Facebook Pixel, we can continue to reproduce the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by observing whether users are transferred to our website after clicking on a Facebook advertisement (so-called “Conversion”).
