Why am I not able to edit my campaign?

Ad Guru does not delete ad campaigns created by a user in order to maintain a log of ad campaigns. However, user can change the status of a campaign from “Active” to “Paused” using the toggle button in the campaign dashboard.
Why does the audience size differ on Facebook Ad Manager if I apply the same targeting filters?
We implicitly apply some targeting restrictions to all the campaigns created using Facebook Ad Guru to improve results of ad campaigns. So when you compare the audience reach with Facebook, you will see a difference because of these implicit filters.
