You wouldn't believe it. I have a paid internship this summer with a company out here in San Jose and will be spending at least a few weeks analyzing behavioural trends on Facebook to determine, via public data ascertained both through external sources and my own research, who certain ads should be targeted to. But not by just examining "likes" but rather through other far more advanced and less frequently used methods. I can't elaborate too much because I've signed a non-disclosure agreement. I discussed my project from last year and the three people running this project were impressed.
