You Are Creating The New Facebook Advertisements

Facebook unveiled a new advertising system today which they call “sponsored stories.” Based on things you and your friends like and places you check into Facebook can now generate advertisements for you and your friends.

For example, if you check into a local restaurant numerous times Facebook will begin showing your activity to your friends in the form of an advertisement. Essentially Facebook no longer has to create advertisements; they can just show user activity and call it an advertisement.

Surprisingly Facebook said users will not be able to opt out of the new sponsored stories system. Of course it is always possible that Facebook will change their mind at a later date.
