One of the most notorious novelties of Facebook in 2015 is the alliance of Mark Zuckerberg's company with IBM, an alliance that revolves around maximizing data for the personalization of campaigns, one of the most precious aspects in the field of online marketing.
Through this agreement, IBM and Facebook want to ensure that personalized advertising campaigns reach "the right people" and "at the right time". According to Deepak Advani, CEO of IBM Commerce: "Brands understand the growing need to provide to customers powerful and personalized experiences to feed loyalty."
