Facebook Is Going to Let Advertisers Target You Based on Location

Facebook Is Going to Let Advertisers Target You Based on Location

TheStreet (Oct. 8, 2014) — Facebook is going to start allowing advertisers to target its users based on their locations. In a blog post, the social media network announced its new local awareness ads, designed to help local businesses reach more customers. The ads will let businesses show ads to people near their neighborhoods. The company says they're built to be more cost-effective than traditional advertising channels. When it comes to privacy, Facebook says advertisers select locations, not individuals and users will only see ads based on their recent location if location services are enabled on their phone. The ads will roll out to U.S. advertisers in the coming weeks. Video provided by TheStreet

FAA Considers Letting Film/TV Companies Use Drones for First Time

TheStreet (June 3, 2014) — The FAA is reviewing a request by seven film and television companies to use drones when filming. The companies hope to use drones to achieve creative aerial shots, but they also can be less expensive than manned aircraft and some believe, safer. The FAA prohibits the use of unmanned aircraft systems for commercial purposes due to safety and privacy concerns. The FAA acknowledged that granting the exemptions could have "tangible economic benefits." In order to receive permission, the FAA said the companies must show that their drone operations won't be a safety hazard and would be in the public interest. Video provided by TheStreet

EU Court Slams Google, Says People Have 'Right to Be Forgotten' Online

EU Court Slams Google, Says People Have 'Right to Be Forgotten' Online

TheStreet (May 13, 2014) — The European Union's Court of Justice ruled Tuesday that people have the right to make Google delete information about them in search results. The justices sided with privacy advocates who argued that people should have a right to erase their online lives. The ruling stemmed from a case involving a Spanish man who claimed that a home foreclosure notice, which was published by a local newspaper 16 years ago, should no longer be linked to him. Google says it was "disappointed" with the decision and will look at what it will mean for its business. Google is facing privacy investigations around the world as it continues to add services and see increasing competition with Facebook for users and advertisers. Video provided by TheStreet
