CALIFORNIA, USA: Facebook has announced that they will soon be starting interest-based advertising, which many companies already do. Based on the users’ demand, that they want to see more relevant advertisements, this step has been taken.

If one is thinking about buying a new TV, and you start researching TVs on the Web and in mobile apps ads for deals on a TV to help you get the best price or other brands to consider, will be shown.

And so if you’re interested in electronics, ads for other electronics in the future, like speakers or a game console to go with your new TV, will be shown.
