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
