A social networking website logs information about actions taken by members of the website. For a particular member of the website, the website generates socially relevant ads for the member based on the actions logged for other members on the website to whom the member is connected (i.e., the member’s online friends). The advertiser associated with the social ad may compensate the social networking website for publishing the ad on the website.

The expected value may be computed according to a function that includes the member’s affinity for the ad content and the bid amount. The technique is also applied for providing socially relevant information off the social networking website. Link: U.S. Patent 8799068
