Facebook ads vs Google AdWords: The basics

The basics are the differences between google and Facebook. We will first have to focus on how these two platforms target people. Therefore we will concentrate on their similarities and differences. Both Facebook and Google use IP addresses as a way to determine the user’s location. However Facebook takes it to another level by employing the tactics of allowing users to add their specific town. There is no doubt that Facebook by far collects more data on customers than Google. Facebook also uses other data in order to create specifically targeted ads. For instance they can look at your interests and your age.
