engaged with your business means they are more likely to purchase from you

lists for Facebook advertising called Lookalike
A Lookalike Audience is a way to reach new people who are
likely to be interested in your business because they're similar to people who have
already shown interest in your business by purchasing from you. By utilizing
this Facebook advertising feature, you can take a small client list and create
a much larger Lookalike Audience from it. If you then choose that audience to
run ads to, you’re likely to find new customers.
