What is a Facebook pixel code?
It’s a little bit of code that sits on your website and it collects bits of information about visitors on your site. It will let you know who’s been on your website, what page have been on… In addition, you can even do more advanced things like what actions we’ve taken on your site.
Then, if a visitor has a Facebook, when they hop onto his Facebook page, you can start showing ads that are super tailored to them, and you can make them really tailor because you know that they’ve got interesting your website they’ve been on it and you even know what pages they’ve been on. It’s a really powerful tool and it just collects all that information on the backgrounds.
