Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB): Facebook, Inc. will introduce a new tool today that will allow online retailers to track members purchases if they have viewed one of their advertisements. This tool is the latest in the new advertising features that Facebook is using to let marketers know that sending advertising dollars to the company can deliver a profit. Facebook, with roughly 1 billion users, has faced a tough reception on Wall Street amid concerns about their slowing revenue growth. “Measuring ad effectiveness and outcomes is absolutely crucial to all types of businesses and marketers,” said David Baser, a product manager for Facebook’s ads business, who said the “conversion measurement” tool has been a top customer request for a while. The sales information that advertisers receive is anonymous,” said Baser. “You would see the number of people who bought shoes,” he said, using the example of an online shoe retailer. However, marketers would not be able to get information that could identify the people.
