Faucet is the Cetera approved & turnkey solution for broker/dealers to archive comments posted to Facebook Ads in order to maintain FINRA compliance.
Unlike organic posts to Facebook pages, paid ads require extra steps and software in order to extract comments left by Facebook users on an ongoing basis. FAUCET was developed to solve this problem in the form of a per ad service. Whether you have done Facebook ads in the past or have never tried them before, there hasn’t been a better time to get started or jump back in.
About Facebook Advertising

Frequently Asked Questions
Why was Faucet created?
Due to security changes in Facebook for Ad API permissions, the typical method for pulling comments from Facebook pages no longer works for compliance archiving. Working directly with advisors, we have developed a managed tool (Faucet) for extracting, storing and transmitting comments for compliance oversight.
When will I be billed?
Billing periods run from the 1st to the end of the month. Invoices are sent the following month with a summary of all ads that were active and inactive.
What is the difference between an active and inactive ad?
Ads are marked as “active” when they are actively being advertised to Facebook users, at any given time in a monthly period. At the end of an ad run (when it is turned off), the ad is labeled as “inactive”.
Where is the data stored and how is it monitored?
Faucet stores a copy of all ad related comments indefinitely in a secure database, and transmits them to any approved compliance monitoring software (like SiteQuest).
Why do I have to pay for inactive ads?
Ads that are inactive as still in the public domain and can be commented on by any Facebook user. Because this falls under the same compliance rules, they must be continuously monitored. However, the frequency of which we check for new comments is spread out over time, which reduces the cost. Inactive ads can be deleted and removed from the public domain, however the down side is loss of past performance and insight data, including the ability to clone that ad for future re-use.
What does Faucet stand for?
We love acronyms, so we derived Faucet from Facebook Ads Unlimited Comment Extraction Tool. Because we wanted to help advisors turn Facebook ads back on and let new leads flow again, we thought the name Faucet was fitting.
No matter the size of your organization, you only pay for what you use.
