    Hello!

    Do you intend to add support also for the Facebook Pixel Code? If yes, do you have an ETA for this?

    Thanks 🙂

    Hi,

    Sorry, due to the nature of the pixel, the Facebook Pixel can’t be loaded locally.

    Here’s how it works:

    Everytime the pixel is loaded by one of your visitors, information is sent along with the request (as with every other request). If the pixel were to be requested from your server, the information would be sent to your server and never reach Facebook’s servers. 🙂

    Enjoy your day!

    Thanks for the explanation! Then plugins that brags about doing this thing (like wp rocket) aren’t sharing all the info on this?

    Or maybe it’s a more recent development on this (a recent facebook pixel update)? Thanks again 🙂

    Hmmm, they might not be hosting the pixel themselves, but the script requesting the pixel.

    I could look into this! Thanks for the suggestion. No ETA, btw. 🙂
