Researchers are using gene microarrays to understand what makes young skin taut and even-toned and to find out why older epidermis sags, wrinkles or develops spots. They can then hunt for molecules that activate those same genes in aging or sun-damaged skin. A number of skin care lines, such as Olay products, already contain ingredients based on microarray work.

ClickZ
Your business exists in a digital age where social media sites are trying to find a means to monetize on these connected users.

Platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn were all created as a means for communication, but these networks aren't growing their ad platforms to be focused around truly bringing groups of people together for discussion. If new ad formats impede a user's experience within a social network without adding value, your brand should have buffers in place to soften any backlash that may occur against your social advertising.
