Imagine if Facebook could recognize that there is a bottle of Coke in a picture, and make sure all the friends of everyone in the picture see the picture in their Timeline ... paid for by Coke.

Or if Facebook could find the can of Coke in the picture, brighten the pixels and turn the can so the logo is clearly visible. And add a link where you can gift your friend with a coupon for a free Coke.

Or change the can of Coke into a can of Pepsi.

You would need a human to check that the use of the product is positive.

If Coke is going to pay $X to guarantee that picture appears in all the friends feeds, perhaps they can spend $X/10 on a human to quickly judge the photo.
