We seriously should invest in Space X, so we could conquer the stars and bring Facebook's network to the Galactic unwashed citizens.

I know. It's a shame that there is just no easy way to keep in touch with my friends in the Alpha Centauri system.

I thought this was a great read

"If he looks at FB Audience Insights tool, he can see how large FB estimates the audience for certain interests might be. When he types in “lions,” “[FB] says I have 5 to 6 million monthly active people I can target”

"I like lions, so I follow an Instagram account that posts pictures of them, they post an ad, so I go to a webpage, and now I get ads chasing me all over the Internet advertising a lion bracelet"

What do you guys think of the changes?

Seems like a good idea, long-term thinking, trying to make things better for users and preempt mounting criticism.

Could of course also be aimed at getting businesses to spend more on ads to show up in people's feeds.
