    If you have any questions, please contact us here: Contact WhatConverts Support or email support@whatconverts.com

    There are two options for tracking Facebook traffic.

    Using Web Referral Trigger

    For Facebook referral traffic, you can use one of "facebook.com", "m.facebook.com, ", "lm.facebook.com", "touch.facebook.com" and " l.facebook.com" as the source; Facebook sends traffic from these sub-domains.

      Note: When adding multiple referral domains, enter the domains with a comma with no space between each domain.
