Re: Shopping
I certainly can see how this would be valuable to marketers, and it's just something else that Facebook can offer to its advertisers that perhaps no other company can do. 

Google should be able to do this as well – surprising that they aren't already. But maybe with this Facebook announcement, they will also release a similar product for marketers.

Re: Shopping
Facebook knows so much about me and communicates it so well to ebay that I hardly have to think about what I want to buy - it's all there waiting for me as soon as I log in, with comments and recommendations. Don't worry about the NSA, they're amateurs compared to this crew.

>Facebook can track and link activity on various devices since users must log in first to use the service.

This is why you should log out of Facebook.

I don't trust the phrase "Don't Worry" with anything Facebook does...

Re: Shopping
Ditto, @Laurie. Companies should find this information useful when designing websites, apps, and processes. Obviously they can fit a lot more info on a desktop vs. tablet, on a tablet vs. a smartphone, and having to cope with the incorrect display is frustrating (viewing non-smartphone optimized sites on my iPhone drives me to distraction!).

Shopping
I am much more likely to shop on my tablet than my phone, simply because I find the larger screen more convenient for shopping. Will FB data shine much more light on that trend?

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
