The Facebook pixel is an analytics tool that allows you to measure the effectiveness of your advertising by understanding the actions people take on your website.
How to Find Your Facebook Pixel ID
To find your Facebook Pixel ID you first need to find the Events Manager page in your Facebook Account.
To access this page you'll need to click on the Ads Manager link located on the left-side menu from your Facebook homepage. You may need to click a 'See More' button to reveal the lower part of the menu where it is located.
From there you will click the button at the top of the left-side bar that looks like 9 dots in a square. It should be right above your profile image. This will pop-out another menu where the Events Manager link is located.
You will find your Facebook Pixel ID located in the left-side column under 'Data Sources'
You can then highlight your Pixel ID and copy it (Ctrl+C or ⌘+C). Your Facebook Pixel ID should be 15 numbers long.
If you do not have a Facebook Pixel created you can find how to do so by visiting this walkthrough support article:
