Beginning February 15th, 2021, website events that are shared using the Facebook Conversions API require additional parameters to remain operational. This notification describes the new parameters and how to configure them using your Facebook Conversions connector.

About

The new parameters for the Facebook Conversions connector are intended to improve the quality of events used for ad delivery and campaign performance. These parameters are required and must be added to your current Facebook Conversions connector configuration in order for the connector to remain operational.

In addition to ensuring the new parameters are added and configured, Tealium recommends checking the following items throughout your Facebook Conversions connector configuration:

  • action sources
  • website events
  • URLs sent
  • User Agent attributes sent
