Facebook announces the launch of another ad offering called Facebook Custom Audience. It allows marketers to find their offline or E-mail audience on Facebook. Marketers can now take an E-mail or phone list of their current customers, prospects, loyalty club members, current or lapsed users and upload them to Facebook.

After the lists are uploaded, Facebook serves that audience targeted ads as they spend time on the social network.

IHS Isuppli, a market research firm, estimates 17 million seven-inch tablets shipped last year and projects that this year’s total shipments will reach 34 million worldwide. By 2013 that number will nearly double. The smaller tablets are also expected to account for an increasing share of all tablet shipments, rising from 24 percent in 2011 to 28 percent this year and 33 percent by 2013.

GoldSpot Media, a digital ad firm, reports that in October 38 percent of clicks on static banner ads it served, and 13 percent of clicks on rich media banners, were accidental.

The instance of social sharing increases on seven-inch screens. On these smaller displays, only 29 percent share via E-mail, but 42 percent via Facebook and 24 percent via Twitter.

Ratings/research company Nielsen Co. files a motion with the New York State Supreme Court to dismiss the nearly $1 billion breach of contract and negligence lawsuit brought against it by New Delhi Television, an Indian TV network. The suit, filed earlier this year, centers on an Indian TV ratings company called TAM that is owned jointly by Nielsen and WPP subsidiaries. Nielsen argues that India was the appropriate venue for a lawsuit, not New York. WPP, which filed a separate request to dismiss the suit in August, also joined the Nielsen petition.
