    Strange then how I find little relevance in the ads I see in Facebook. I guess Facebook doesn’t know me as well as it thinks it does…

    i have experimented with deleting ads from facebook the more i delete a certain catagory like dating the more dating ads i get.i like relevant ads i guess if i posted i was in relationship they might disappear the dating ad that is.
    if you leave your interests and likes blank guess what not to many ads come your way.

  3. I think the percentage share of Facebook credits as a revenue source will increase. With the onset of F-commerce, it’s not impossible that F-credits will be used in a different way and not just for advertising or online games.

    Amazing too how much data social networks can collect. Users should be wary of not only their privacy settings but with anything they put up out there.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
