Facebook ads use your face for free

Facebook is rolling out a new type of ad that uses your Likes in ads for Starbucks, Levi's, and Coke. Don't "Like" it? Too bad.

(Just swallow the blue pill with the lowercase f on it and everything will be just fine. There, there. That’s better, isn’t it?)

If you were Kim Kardashian or 50 Cent, you could be paid tens of thousands just for tweeting something inane about a product. But if you’re an ordinary Joe or Jane on Facebook, you get nothing for the use of your face. Yet more proof that all those cool features Facebook provides for free, really aren’t.

ITworld TY4NS blogger Dan Tynan’s face has never appeared on any ad, Facebook or otherwise, and that’s a good thing. Experience his juvenile sense of humor at eSarcasm (Geek Humor Gone Wild) or follow him on Twitter:@tynan_on_tech.
