Facebook Account Ads Performance

The Facebook Ads Account report affords you insights into your Facebook ad performance for all of your campaigns across a specific date range. Breaking down Facebook ad performance within a specific date range, the report presents a look at your ad impressions, reach, clicks, cost per click, ad spend, and more. 

The data shown within the report is segmented according to month. However, should the date range selected reflect partial periods within a month or multiple months, the report will still segment your data according to month, showing your ad performance for the partial monthly period(s) selected based on the start date chosen. 

Important! In order to view this report, you must authorize a connection to a Facebook account that has Admin permissions for a Facebook Page and connect your Facebook ad account.
