As much as consumers claim to have concerns around Facebook privacy issues, we sure don't mind handing our information over to them left and right.
Every single day, more than a billion active users share their thoughts, photos, news, videos, memes and more with friends and connections on Facebook.
Sure, we know we're sharing that content and the associated meta data that goes with it back to Facebook. Our sign-in and posting locations; where we took a certain photo; what events we attended and which artists we enjoy. We share all of this, much of it indirectly, without a second thought.
And yet some of us are still surprised when it seems like ads are following us around the web!
Have you ever searched for something, only to see that same product pop up in a sponsored post in your Facebook stream the next time you sign in?
Or read an article about a certain topic, then had ads about that topic appear in your Facebook newsfeed?
