Audience Manager Expanded Activation

Built on Adobe Experience Platform, Audience Manager Expanded Activation helps existing Audience Manager users activate their audiences to social and advertising destination platforms from Real-Time CDP, such as Facebook, Google Ads, and more.

Audience Manager Expanded Activation is only available to existing Audience Manager users.

Terminology terminology

Audience Manager Expanded Activation uses concepts and components from Adobe Experience Platform. To better understand the Expanded Activation workflow and the components that you will be using, make sure you have a basic understanding of the following concepts:

  • Audiences: Audiences are sets of people who share similar behaviors and/or characteristics. This collection of people can either be generated by Adobe Experience Platform using segment definitions or audience composition (Platform-generated audience) or from external sources such as custom uploads (externally generated audience). In Expanded Activation, your Audience Manager segments (audiences) are imported as custom uploads.
  • Source connectors: Source connectors (also known as sources) help Experience Platform users easily ingest data from multiple sources, allowing the structuring, labeling and enhancement of data using Experience Platform services. Data can be ingested from a variety of sources such as cloud-based storage, third party software, and CRM systems.
  • Destination connectors: Destinations describe any endpoint, such as an Adobe application, advertising platform, cloud storage service, or marketing service, where an audience is activated and delivered. Expanded Activation supports the activation of audiences to advertising and social destination connectors.
