When Facebook announced its 1 billionth user in 2012 ... It also said it had accumulated over 1.13 trillion likes. Source: Facebook

Слайд 7

Keep in mind likes have only been around since 2009, so the average is likely even higher today.

Слайд 8

Suffice it to say, Facebook probably knows your personality better than anyone in the world.

Слайд 9

So, what can Facebook do with all its data?

Слайд 10

It can show you more interesting items in your News Feed.

Слайд 11

It can use the data to target advertisements.

Слайд 12

And ad targeting is improving. Average ad revenue per user increased 27% last quarter Ad prices increased 220%

Слайд 13

But Facebook's personality data coupled with its social graph could enable Facebook to enter other verticals.

Слайд 14

It could license its data to researchers and organizations that require people to submit personality profiles.

Слайд 15

Twitter generated over $100 million from licensing its data last year.

Слайд 16

And Facebook has five-times as many users.

Слайд 17

Facebook could create a recruiting platform to connect users with jobs that suit their personality.

Слайд 18

LinkedIn generated $1.3 billion from its Talent Solutions product last year.

Слайд 19

And its users are hardly engaged compared to Facebook.

Слайд 20

Facebook could even build a dating app to take advantage of its personality data and social graph.

Слайд 22

Few other companies can boast personality profiles as accurate as Facebook's.

Слайд 23

Search history is another good indicator of personality.

Слайд 24

As is purchase history.

Слайд 25

Facebook is working to enter both of those markets.

Слайд 26

And its reach is as wide as any company in the world.

Слайд 27

So, it knows more about more people than anyone in the world.

Слайд 28

And it understands you better every day.

Слайд 29

The researchers believe that increasing the number of likes beyond what was available in the study could further boost the accuracy of their personality model.
