- A Facebook Ads Account that includes a Facebook Business Account.
- Administrator privileges on the Facebook Ads Account.
- Custom Audience Terms need to be accepted by the user setting up the connection in Customer Insights.

Set up connection to Facebook Ads Manager
You must be an administrator in Customer Insights to add a connection.
Go to Admin > Connections.

Give your connection a recognizable name in the Display name field. The name and the type of the connection describe this connection. We recommend choosing a name that explains the purpose and target of the connection.

Configure an export
To configure this export, you must have permission for this connection type.
Go to Data > Exports.
Select Add export.
In the Connection for export field, choose a connection from the Facebook Ads Manager section. Contact an administrator if no connection is available.
Enter a name for the export.
In the Connect data field, select Email, Name and address, or Phone to send to Facebook Ads Manager.
Map the corresponding attributes from your unified customer entity for the selected key identifier.
The best chances for a match occur if you select Email as key identifier. Adding additional identifiers may improve the matching.
Select Add attribute to map more attributes to send to Facebook Ads Manager. Attributes from Facebook Ads Manager are mapping to the following user-friendly names: FN = First Name, LN = Last Name, FI = First Initial, PHONE = Phone, GEN = Gender, DOB = Date of birth, ST = State, CT = City, ZIP = Postal code / ZIP Code, COUNTRY = Country / Region
All personal data is sent as a hashed value to Facebook.
Select the segments you want to export.
Saving an export doesn't run the export immediately. The export runs with every scheduled refresh. You can also export data on demand.
