Facebook allows advertisers to target iOS IDs in Custom Audiences

Included in the newest round of Facebook updates for developers is a new software development kit (SDK) for iOS in line with iOS 7 and an official announcement about the new image specs in links. Facebook also announced that advertisers can reach mobile customers by leveraging iOS identifier for advertising (iOS IDFAs).

Facebook notes that advertisers can upload a list of existing customers’ iOS iDFAs and reach them with relevant content. This will be possible for any user on iOS 6 or 7 who has not disabled advertising tracking. Lookalike Audiences will also be able to target similar users. In May, Facebook announced App User IDs, allowing advertisers to define and reach people that have engaged with their Facebook-connected mobile app.

Advertisers can upload mobile advertiser IDs (either the iOS IDFAs or App User IDs) within the Power Editor and the ads application programming interface. Facebook noted that this has been one of the most-requested features from mobile advertisers, many of whom already leverage the iOS IDFA as a standard advertising ID for Apple users.

Facebook does not yet offer this capability for Android users.
