What Facebook and Vogue Have in Common: Users Love the Ads

Free sites like Facebook and Vogue must love advertisements. According to this article, the advertisements on Facebook’s news feed appeals to a large number of users. After the new improvements, Facebook has now developed a way to to track what ads appeals to users. They show certain advertisements to certain individuals. One ad that stands out is an ad that shows nomorerack, this ad has more than 66,000 likes and over 20,000 shares. 

I am really surprised at how the ads could track what ads we want to see. But if I have never clicked on any ads, is there a way for them to track what we like then by just our conversations on Facebook. How private are our conversations and interests on Facebook and are they ever shared with businesses. But nonetheless, these ads are why we could use Facebook for free.
