Business News: Google's new user-based endorsement ads

Posted: Updated:

 

 

(CBS) - In Business News, Google wants your permission to use your name and face in ads that it sells to businesses.

Your reviews of restaurants and products, as well as songs and other content bought on the Google Play store could show up in ads.

These ads are displayed to your friends and connections when they search on Google.

The policy goes into effect Nov.11th, but users can opt out. 


(CBS) - The U.S. is expected to become the world's largest oil producer next year overtaking Russia, thanks to the American Shale oil boom.

The international energy agency estimates U.S. production of oil and natural gas liquids will exceed 11 million barrels a day, making it the biggest producer outside of OPEC, by next Spring.

 


 

(CNN) - Debit-style, Federal benefit cards for SNAP and WIC, both government food programs, stopped working in 17 states.

But it apparently wasn't related to the government shutdown. Turns out a computer failure is to blame. 

A Xerox spokesperson says it happened Saturday morning during a routine test of the back-up systems. 

The system is now back up and running, but some beneficiaries might still have trouble accessing their benefits until technical staff fixes the issue.
