Facebook Ad offers loads of different ad formats and thousands of possible Ad targeting options: data brokers Epsilon, Acxiom, and Datalogix, are long time Facebook Ad customers, they have manage trillions of data transactions each year (for example Acxiom database contains information about 500 million active consumers worldwide) and heavy rely on the Facebook Ad platform to target their customers.

Facebook Ad shows you how many user profiles you can target in each subcategory, based on their aggregated, multi-sourced offline transaction-based data. Purchasing behavior sub – categories include Buyer Profiles, Clothing, Food & Drink, Health & Beauty and a lot more. Positive interactions might include video views, conversions and other factors, depending on the type of ad you’re running. When people hide or report your ad, your Relevance Score will suffer.

Facebook promises that the score is updated on a continual basis, as people view and interact with your ads. Not all ads will have a Relevance Score, though – ads with guaranteed delivery will not be affected. The higher your Relevance Score, the lower your cost of ad delivery. Facebook wants to show users the most relevant ads possible, giving you a reward for quality.

Advertisers will want to keep a close eye on Relevance Scores throughout the life of each campaign. If your scores are slipping, your ad delivery will suffer and costs will increase.

You shouldn’t use Relevance Score as the primary indicator of ad performance, Facebook mostly want to downplay its importance since they still want you to spend on “poor quality ads”; truth is that the factor that determines your ad placement and cost is pretty damn important. Before launching a full campaign, test out your ads with small audiences to see which combinations of creative and targeting produce the greatest Relevance Score. On Facebook, ads with low Relevance Score but a high bid might still beat out the ad with the high RS and lower bid.
