The launch of Facebook Exchange (FBX) last year was met with considerable enthusiasm, and many in our industry rightly heralded it as a development with widespread implications for the online display ad market.
While there has been real excitement, the majority of discussion seems to have focused on retargeting through FBX, positioning the platform as the go-to place if you want to retarget.

A lot of the digital focus from these local news groups is on nationals. While they serve the local advertising community, their eyes always seem fixated on [...]
