As Facebook gives users greater control over how their data may or may not be shared with third-party apps and sites, including their own family of brands, the net result of these shifts could cause remarketing audience sizes to shrink, said Carson. She also added, “Advertisers will have to broaden their audience targeting definitions, potentially leading to less qualified users and dips in performance.”
