Re: Localized ads
I'd love to hear some stats on the type of people that actually click on Facebook adverts. I'd be very surprised if it didn't fit into a specific demographic. Perhaps a certain age group, or a certain brower type user. 

Ultimately whether you're targeting adverts at group users on those on an email list, you have to appeal to that one group that's actually going to click on them.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
