Facebook, however, only began selling re-targeted ads this summer, when it opened something called the Facebook Exchange, better known as FBX in the industry.

What's truly remarkable is that inventory sold through FBX re-targeting uses ZERO Facebook profile data, and yet it is much more valuable.

I've been working on this new channel for the last four months, and what's interesting is that FBX works for two reasons:

1. unlike other real-time exchanges, users available for targeting via FBX are on one publisher all day long, so the ads themselves have much more of an impact;

2. when people are on Facebook they're not really focused on a task, and as a result they're open to ads that reawaken their interest in a product or service they'd been looking at on another website.
