Facebook launched the Facebook Pixel Helper to help you validate that your Conversion Tracking and Custom Audience Pixels have been installed on your website correctly.
The Facebook Pixel Helper is a troubleshooting tool that helps you validate your pixel implementation. It works in the background to look for conversion or Facebook pixels and provide realtime feedback on the implementation. A small number will appear on the Facebook Pixel Helper icon to indicate number of pixel events. When clicked, a panel will expand to show a detailed overview of the page's pixels, including warnings, errors and successes.
With the Facebook Pixel Helper you can:
- Verify your pixels are working properly
- Troubleshoot common errors
- Learn how to improve performance
How It Works
The Facebook Pixel Helper runs in the background and looks for a Facebook marketing pixel on each website you visit. If the site you're on has one installed, the </> icon will turn blue and a counter will reveal how many pixels were found on the page.
You can identify issues with the pixel on your page when the icon doesn't turn blue. Click the </> icon will open up a popup with debugging information to help you troubleshoot.
