Behavioral targeting (BT) combines a consumer’s online activity with psychographic and demographic profiles compiled in databases. Social networking is the fastest-growing area of BT.

Critics call this form of BT “conversational eavesdropping analysis,” whereas advocates call it “user-declared information targeting.” Please watch the following video.
