Twenty-three years since it was released, the film "Dirty Dancing" is the sixth most popular movie site on Facebook with 6.8 million "likes." The social network destination, which helped Jennifer Gray win "Dancing With the Stars" and set a Guinness World Record for most comments following Patrick Swayze's death, was started by fans.
Facebook now drives more Web video traffic than any other Internet property save Google. Findings from the latest Online Video and the Media Industry Quarterly Research Report says 9.5 percent of all video traffic comes from the social media site.
A "Do Not Track" measure, an idea recently floated by the Federal Trade Commission, has broad public support, a USA Today/Gallup poll found. Of those surveyed, 30 percent responded that advertisers should not be allowed to match ads to specific interests based on the Web sites they visited.
The Federal Trade Commission wants to take out the online mashers and grifters with a Do Not Track concept. At stake is a more than $1.1 billion business growing at a double-digit clip. Factor in the use of data to determine marketing efficiencies and that figure could be as high as $7 billion to $8 billion.
