4 facts about Facebook advertising that ad up to a big problem:
Last weekend was the busiest of the year for Eurotunnel, as holidaymakers from France and across Europe head back to Britain for the start of the school year.

The staff at Eurotunnel did a very good job at communicating with their passengers. They sent text messages both 2 days beforehand and throughout the day, and responded rapidly on Twitter.

So I'll post this to unpick how this works, and to put your mind at ease that you can safely ignore these emails.
For years, I've been a fan of the internet filtering software Net Nanny. I'll explain why in a moment.
