  1. have seen it for quite a while, such as in the IQ ads where it pulls the friends pictures and says such friends have those IQ scores. I personally don’t really care, as long as it is all dynamic and only your friends see it. And I’m sure legally we did agree.

    I saw it in Firefox I believe, as that was probably the browser I used to change the setting. I’m on version 3 on Ubuntu.

  2. Regarding Firefox, Make sure you don’t have Adblock Plus enabled on the Facebook Ads page, as I discovered the box will not show up otherwise. FF 3.5 on Ubuntu 64 here
