Purpose of this paper is to use Facebook dataset for predicting Exchanges in Electronic business. For this purpose, first a dataset is collected from Facebook users and this dataset is divided into two training and test datasets. First, an advertisement post is sent for training data users and feedback from each user is recorded. Then, a learning machine is designed and trained based on these feedbacks and users' profiles. In order to design this learning machine, genetic programming is used.

Experiment results showed that the proposed method outperforms basic algorithm (based on J48) and random selection method in selecting objective users for sending advertisements. The proposed method has obtained Accuracy=74% and 73% earning ration in classifying users.
