Recently people are facing a problem that the Detail Targeting Expansion button in the Ad set is gone, and Facebook turns on by default. So many people reported that they have run ads without sales, or untick and the sale was good. But when Facebook updated, the ads do not sell anymore.

But first, we need to understand what is Detail Targeting Expansion? When it is enabled, Facebook will automatically expand the audience file beyond what you are targeting if Facebook sees the potential to increase campaign performance.

Detail Targeting Expansion will not expand Demographics. That means if you target females from 20 to 25 years old, it will stay the same. There’s no way it will expand to females aged 25 to 30, for example.

In theory, Detail Targeting Expansion should only be used by Facebook when our campaign is not effective. And Facebook sees potential for improvement if it uses Detail Targeting Expansion. And if the campaign is good, it will not be turned on.

But how it actually runs. No one knows.

No matter what, the Advertiser is still the one who suffers when they spend more on ads but Facebook delivery is so bad. The sale doesn’t exist and no one benefits from that.

This update will cause a lot of difficulties for newcomers when the data such as pixels, pages… are all new and are not there. But how do you know? Facebook is mastering the game. If you want to use it, you have to accept it. There’s no other choice.
