SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) — Facebook is letting some companies look at the other "Likes" of their fans. This means if you like a brand's page, that brand's marketers knows what your other "Likes" are, whether it be your favorite bands or TV shows, unidentified sources told the advertising magazine. For now, this tool is available only to "priority accounts," according to an AdWeek report.
When asked for comment or confirmation, a Facebook spokesperson said the company had nothing to share at this time.
If Facebook was allowing some companies access to this information, they may use it to plan their advertising strategy. Fans' interests, which could include favorite bands or TV shows, could help advertisers know how to stay relevant to consumers who have already expressed interest in their brand. This could manifest in which songs are chosen in TV ads or what partnerships are valuable.
SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) — The suspect in the Sikh temple shooting who killed six in Wisconsin on Sunday has been identified as 40-year-old Wade Michael Page.
Authorities told CBS News this morning that Page -- who was also killed in a shootout with cops -- opened fire at a suburban Milwaukee temple, critically wounding three and killing six worshipers during Sunday services.
Page is reportedly a former U.S. Army soldier, once attached to the Fort Bragg Army installation in North Carolina, Fox News reported.
Police and the FBI haven't revealed a possible motive in the Sunday morning rampage that shocked Oak Creek.
A man claiming to be Page's landlord told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel said that he was white and single. The duplex Page rented from Kurt Weins was searched by police on Sunday.
An agent from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms told ABC News that the shooter had tattoos. The station also cited unnamed sources who alleged that the shooter was possibly a "skin head" or "white supremacist."
Four people were shot dead inside the large temple where members were gathering for mediation at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. Three, including Page, were killed outside.
UPDATE: Page was the leader of a white supremacist band called End Apathy, and gave an interview to a music website declaring that he wanted to "end people's apathetic ways" and that "I was holding myself back," according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Page said he had been part of the white power movement since 2000.
"The inspiration was based on frustration that we have the potential to accomplish so much more as individuals and a society in whole," he said in the interview with Label 56.—www.shafaqna.com/english
