What Is Facebook Marketing API?

The advertising API is an HTTP-based application that you can use to access data, create and manage ads on Facebook. Besides, it can perform other operations that programmatically allow you to access the Facebook advertising platform and optimize your ad campaigns accordingly. You can use it to create ads on Facebook, read, modify, and even delete ad creatives on Facebook advertising platforms (Facebook messenger, Instagram, stories, feed post, etc).


Since most marketers are not developers, they don’t know about the secrets of Facebook advertising API. Still, Facebook for developers allows you to use their API feature to improvise your business ad strategies.

Here we are going to show you steps to utilize the marketing API features. So without further ado, here we go!

Create A Facebook App-

To start first, go to the Facebook for developer page, where you will find the apps section. There you have the Create App option. Tap on it. There you will have to give a display name and add your contact email address. Once it is done, tap on the Create App ID button, and it will create your own app.


Generating An Access Token-

For the next step, you need to request an access token to authenticate your app before using the marketing API. Go to the Tools section and tap on Graph API explorer. Select the App you have created. Now click on the Get Token dropdown to select Get API Token. Next  you will get a string of mixed numbers and letters. That’s your Access Token.


Use the adinterest method-

So now you are ready to use the marketing API to create campaigns, set your budget and target options to ensure better conversions. With this method, you just have to put the keywords and API will automatically show you the relevant keywords accordingly. You can use the below given URL to check the insights provided by API.

For example, if you are using a keyword- Football. Use it in the given URL within the bracket (where the initial letter should be capital), and replace your access token with the stream of number and letter you have generated on Access Token.[Football]&limit=10000&locale=en_US&access_token=your-access-token

According to your own ad campaign, you can replace the keyword and access token in the given URL. Once you browse this URL, it will show you the insights.


Use the adinterestsuggestion method-

Just like the previous method (adinterest), you can use adinterestsuggestion in a similar way. However, this method will not work with every keyword. Although it can help you to find additional hidden interests that you haven’t considered before. But sometimes it may also not show you any new interests.

Just like the above example, here is a link for you to browse.[“Football”]&limit=1000&locale=en_US&access_token=your-access-token

You can copy this URL and replace your keyword and your access token accordingly to check results. Here, instead of using keywords under the notation, you can use %22 to replace the notations. Like this URL shown below. Since sometimes, the format of the text file messes up the quotation symbol on your browser.[%22Football%22]&limit=1000&locale=en_US&access_token=your-access-token

Now you can put this link in your browser. Replace the keyword and access token and tap on the Enter button. It will show you the following insights.


Just using these two methods, you can use Facebook advertising API to get more than 25 interest suggestions that you will find in Facebook ad manager. This gives you a wide variety of options to target audiences based on interests and various other insights.
