Facebook is cashing in on pregnant women by selling access to private information about their due dates and the gender of their unborn babies to advertisers.
 
Women who pass on the happy news of their pregnancy to loved ones on the site can be bombarded with promotions for baby clothes, nappies, prams, and toys as a result of the policy.

Just one more reason I'm glad I never got into FB.

I'd be getting bombarded with free porn site offers.
