Connecting with the Facebook API


Gloo Insights has a direct connection to Facebook using the Facebook API. This allows you to export an Audience you've created in Gloo Insights to Facebook for Audience activation. Once exported, your Gloo Insights Audiences can be activated just like any other Audience in Facebook for targeting.




In order to activate a Gloo Insights Audience on Facebook, you must:

  • Create and save an Audience in Gloo Insights using Audience Builder or Maps
  • Have Administrator Access in Gloo Insights (contact your Gloo CSM if you need help)
  • Establish a Business Manager account with access to Ads Manager on Facebook (you will need your Facebook login and password)
  • Establish a connection between Gloo Insights and Facebook in Activation Platforms
