Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) is rolling out Telco Outcome Measurement, a new tool designed to help operators and service providers reconcile in-store sales with ad impressions delivered across the social media platform.

The social networking giant claims the tool can determine how and when an ad on Facebook correlates to certain actions, such as a group of people switching to new handsets, tablets or carriers.
