Do you want your Facebook actions to control what ads show up on your friends Facebook wall? Well that may just happen if you are not aware of the Facebook privacy setting that allows for this. The Facebook News Feed and Wall setting states: "Facebook occasionally pairs advertisements with relevant social actions from a user's friends to create Facebook Ads. Facebook Ads make advertisements more interesting and more tailored to you and your friends. These respect all privacy rules. You may opt out of appearing in your friends' Facebook Ads below." So how can you disable this? When logged into Facebook (11 comments)

How Will Cap and Trade Effect Your Real Estate Business? - 07/01/09 01:13 PM
This is an outstanding post by Nestor & Katerina Gasset that all Americans should read, understand and become aware of. Via Nestor & Katerina Gasset Realtors® Wellington Florida Luxury Homes (International Properties and Investments, Inc.): Real estate is local when it comes to market conditions and market trends. Real estate differs from region to region in styles, architecture and amenities generally speaking. For instance; in Florida fireplaces are not the norm whereas in cold winter areas such as Colorado, fireplaces are a standard addition to a home. In some areas of our country people have wood burning stoves and others have coal burning furnaces. (0 comments)
