Where Do I Get These Numbers?

What is a Result?

A “Result” is Facebook’s version of a conversion. Facebook is using the broadest possible definition of a conversion, however, and so anything that a Facebook campaign is targeting is referred to as a “Result”. This includes (but is not limited to) engagements, purchases, clicks, video views, leads, and more.


Which columns do I need to use in Ad Manager?

In Facebook Ads Manager you can find these numbers in many of the column presets. Simply click the dropdown menu next to the “View setup” slider and choose Performance, Performance and clicks, Targeting and creative, or Bidding and optimisation to get columns for Results and Amount Spent.

You can also click “Customise Columns” to create your own view.
