How MOBOPINIONS improved Facebook Valentines Day targeting relevance by up to 96.7 percent.

February 13, 2019

Brands spent heavily on the Valentines Day advertising to reach interested people, but how accurate was their targeting?

MOBOPINIONS ran a short poll of 759 people in the UK to identify those that would celebrate Valentines Day. The anonymous positive results were then fed into Facebook using their Mobile Ad IDs  and matched with other users who displayed similar characteristics to the sample group in order to identify a more accurate audience to advertise to, the results improved Facebook’s own targeting of over age 18, and Valentines Day by between 82.7% and 96.7%.


The result took into account that 59% planned do celebrate and that:

  •  younger respondents under 18 were the least likely to celebrate at only 44%

  • 25 to 44 year old’s the most likely at 66%

  • 45+ at 59%


The results were collected in 200 mobile apps between the 8th and 11th of February with a 4% margin of error.
