Facebook Ads

Facebook Ads allows marketers to retrieve statistics about their ads, ad sets, and campaigns running on Facebook.

Hevo uses the Facebook Marketing API to replicate your Facebook Ads data into the desired Destination database or data warehouses for scalable analysis. For this, you must authorize Hevo to access data from your Facebook Ads account.

You can also ingest data from your Instagram Ads account using the Facebook Ads connector. Instagram Ads follows the same schema as the Facebook Ads connector and offers the same data replication settings.

For creating Pipelines using this Source, Hevo provides you a fully managed BigQuery data warehouse as a possible Destination. This option remains available till the time you set up your first BigQuery Destination irrespective of any other Destinations that you may have. With the managed warehouse, you are only charged the cost that Hevo incurs for your project in Google BigQuery. The invoice is generated at the end of each month and payment is recovered as per the payment instrument you have set up. You can now create your Pipeline and directly start analyzing your Source data. Read Hevo Managed Google BigQuery.


Source Considerations

  • Facebook Ads allows fetching data up to the past three years. Hence, you can change the offset using the Change Position action only within the past three years; beyond this, the API fails.

Limitations

  • This integration does not support replicating data for reviews and pages. Hevo has a separate integration for Facebook Page Insights that can be used to fetch page and post insights.
