Facebook wants to show us ads that will be interesting and relevant to us. Here is some of the info that might be used to do this:
1. Information that we have added about our self, like our current city, sex, age, relationship status, jobs or schools
2. Interests that we have listed in our profile (timeline) and the Pages and groups we are connected to
3. Actions we take on Facebook, like the Pages or Groups we visit or the apps that we use. Keywords from our posts and status updates. This is done using an automated system. No one at Facebook reads our posts.
4. Note that including more content on our profile (timeline) that relates to our interests may improve the relevance or focus of the Facebook Ads we are looking at.
Facebook has created ad clusters (ex: sports lover, moviegoer, etc. ) that advertisers can use to target their ads. For example, a theater might want to target moviegoers and we might be a member of the moviegoer cluster if we have Liked a number of Pages associated with movies and if we mention movie in your posts.
Advertisers can also target their ads based on topics and keywords. For example, an advertiser can target their ads to the topic Sports and anyone on Facebook who Likes anything sports-related may see those ads. Or, can use a keyword, like The Sound of Music, which will cause the ad to be shown to Facebook members who have specifically liked The Sound of Music Page or added it as an interest on their timeline.
As always, none of our information is shared with advertisers. All ad targeting is performed by an automated system. Advertisers are also not able to see any information about the people who view or click on their ads.
Mail-merge is one of the most useful facilities offered by MS Office. It is the joining together of two sources of information into a single document, usually a list of names and a standard letter/mail to whom a personalized copy of the letter/mail must be sent. This is most commonly done in creating address labels or creating a form letter and most importantly running mail campaign. Only certain details on the mail/letter will change, like having the same mail addressed to a number of different people.
Mail-merge happens with the help of 3 tools i.e. MS Word, MS Excel, MS outlook. Write the body of the mail in word, insert senders list in the form of excel, send mails through outlook. This is the best way to run free mail campaigns.

How to handle “bounced back” emails or “unsubscribed” emails
Create few rules in your outlook for different mail groups. For Ex, if the subject line contains “unsubscribe” then push all the mails to a new folder named “Unsubscribed”. Similarly the same can be done for bounced back emails.
In case of mail campaigns you can expect at least 7-10% bounced mails. It means if you are running a campaign of 50K mails, then you can have 3k to 5k bounced mails and few subscriptions. Now it’s the tough time to handle to bounced mail IDs and unsubscribed mail IDs.
Now let’s understand how to handle these bulk bounced mails. Outlook provides an option to export all the mails from a particular folder into an excel sheet. We’ll use this to extract the data into the excel sheet.
