How to use the Form Event on Facebook

Using the event’s parameters and the page URL you can identify specific forms, like contact, newsletters signups, and so on. This way you can create Custom Conversions and optimize your ads for that particular action. You can also build Custom Audiences for retargeting, and Lookalikes to find new potential users.
