What business solutions will be covered?

CONVERSIONS API

Today, there’s a demand for greater data privacy, and the ecosystem is rapidly evolving in an effort to meet those expectations. A key development is web browsers beginning to implement changes that will significantly alter websites’ ability to share data in the very near future.

Conversions API is a Facebook Business Tool that helps businesses stay ahead of these shifts by sharing key web and offline events, or customer actions, directly from their server to Facebook’s. Conversions API doesn’t use cookies, so web browser settings don’t impact the ability to send data from customers that have already provided all necessary consents (if any).

With Conversions API, businesses can continue driving the outcomes they care about using information they control, all while helping to protect their customer’s data and maximizing performance of their Facebook advertising. (Learn more)
