We use Facebook pixel for three purposes:
- Measurement: Data used to measure first-party conversions. Additionally, we are starting to apply ML to learn when unlabeled conversions happened (i.e. no standard events sent) by looking at existing pixel data across the ecosystem
- Ad Targeting: Data used to reach people similar to your existing audiences or who visited your website
- Ad Delivery: We pool events at a person level to build richer understandings of what ads are relevant for people (from terms of service)
