Facebook is determined to build auto ties
While there isn’t the direct path from a Facebook ad to a product purchase that there is in other industries, Sandberg said the social network is able to show more engagement and prove the value of working together. An ad for GM’s OnStar, for example, targeted users who have the service’s trademark little blue button in their cars but lack a data plan. That campaign resulted in a 7 percent boost to data-plan sales, she said.

Another success story, also with GM, was a Cadillac ad designed to drum up leads for dealers. It generated 42,000, leading directly to 450 sales, Sandberg said.

HODC seeks city aid for Brummel building | Evanston Now

Wilmette residents were skeptical of his assurances because it has been HODC's habit to ask host communities for money for building repairs and improvements. Sure enough, just read this article about another of HODC's projects in Evanston."

Here was my comment in response: "I'm genuinely confused. How does this application for a federal loan constitute a "handout" from a "host community"?
