Heather Hopkins over at Hitwise UK… just blogged about how Facebook is still marching on in the UK and no wonder it’s caught the eyes of Microsoft, although Myspace still gets more traffic than Facebook, the trend isn’t looking good for Myspace which has so much spam and false users it’s getting a little silly.
If Microsoft do buy Facebook, this will give Live and adcenter more data for their age and gender targetting
From adcenter :
You can target customers by age and gender so that your ads are displayed more frequently to people who will be interested in them. The data used for the demographic targeting option (age and gender) comes from information reported by MSN customers.
and with Live.com getting more traction with internet users it’s only time before live.com really starts to make more in roads into the search world..
