Ever wonder why you're being targeted with a Facebook ad?

In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Michelle Held from MetroNY explains Facebook advertising and how to tell whom your competitors are targeting. 

By using her own Facebook account as an example, Held shows you step-by-step how to tell whether a post is a sponsored ad and, if so, why you're being targeted by it. You'll know it's a sponsored post simply because the ad will say "sponsored."

By navigating to a button labeled "Why am I seeing this post?" on a competitor's ad, you'll receive information about whom the company seeks to reach.

To learn more about Facebook ad targeting, click play on the video above.
