A new Facebook Advertising feature now gives brands the ability to target Facebook ads to current or prospective customers based on email address, phone number, or Facebook user ID.

The new feature, called “Custom Audiences,” is available through Power Editor and the Facebook advertising API. To use “Custom Audiences” you must first install Facebook Power Editor, a platform that helps users create, edit and manage a large number of campaigns and ads.

Once installed, you can visit your Power Editor and click the “Custom Audience” tab along the top menu. Then, you can import an email list into a one column CSV file and upload as a new Custom Audience. When you create an ad, you can choose your Custom Audience, and Facebook will match up the email addresses with current Facebook users to serve your ads to only those Facebook users.
