Advertising Age reports that Facebook will block apps that incorporate advertising that fail to comply with Facebook guidelines.  Two types of advertisements may no longer run on Facebook:

    • Anything that sends “user data received from Facebook to ad networks,” which limits the potential for behavioral targeting.
    • Any ads that display user data in applications, “unless specifically approved by Facebook.”


Facebook will still allow apps to incorporate “virtual goods, subscriptions, advertising, or whatever you choose.”
