25+ Essential Acronyms & Abbreviations for Facebook Marketers

Coming from SEO background with 6 years experience, I began facebook advertising in the mid of 2016. It was an e-com store I was managing for a US client.

I was hyperactive in Facebook marketing related communities following up so called experts and Gurus all the time. It was there I stuck to most of the time with new unknown buzz terms. I used to Google it and even asked a silly question to abbreviate those acronyms in FB Groups.
