    Just saw Facebook Adsense ad. Soccer website and title was - Want Live streaming ? Find leive streaming on Facebook bla, bla, similar automatic crap like EBay ads.

    Why the hell would Facebook need any kind of advertising ?

    was the URL going to straight facebook main site?

    It could be a fan page someone advertising. I've seen such stuff, especially celebrity pages at the time of a music launch

    Anywhere in the world building WP sites.
    I could think of at least two reasons:

    1. Facebook hasn't reached 6 billion people yet.
    2. People are abandoning FB. They want to get people back. Retention is a big thing for social networking sites.

    Facebook numbers are slowing down, in the last year they lost 50 million users to twitter. so if they did advertise.it wouldnt be strange.

    No, it's definitely Facebook ad to their homepage, not any app or fanpage
