This post will help you verify your Facebook Pixel events are firing OK.


How to CHECK YOUR WEBSITE using Facebook Pixel Helper


To check your site easily, we recommend the Facebook Pixel Helper chrome extension.

Let's check for an event called SCROLLED 50 PERCENT is correctly installed and firing OK (see image below)

To test, scroll at least half way down the page. Then open the Facebook Pixel Helper by clicking the icon on the browser toolbar.

Alternately you could open the Facebook Pixel Helper first, then scroll down the page.

You should then be able to select that event in your Facebook Custom Audiences.
