- Demographics: Age and gender, lifestyle, education, relationship status, job role, and household size
- Page likes: The top Pages people like in different categories, like women’s apparel or sports
- Location and language: Where do people live, and what languages do they speak
- Facebook usage: How frequently are people in your target audience logging onto Facebook and what device(s) they are using when they log on
- Purchases activity: Past purchase behavior (i.e. heavy buyers of women’s apparel) and purchase methods (i.e., in-store, online)
