Brendan Byrnes: That ties into the product personalization trend also. You see Google really effective at tailoring ads. If I'm looking for dress shoes online, they know to hit me with that ad. Facebook, much the same way, they know a ton about you.

Ann Mack: You're seeing more of the retailers serve up their circulars or coupons that are tailored toward your past purchasing behavior.
