    Facebook Ads Target Youth and Others During Vulnerability

    I was both an early adopter and an early dumper of facebook. It was easy to see a long time ago that not only was it not healthy to know everything about everyone you have ever met but that anyone had access to that information if they wanted it. I would say I'm glad that a lot of kids don't...
