Advertising tailored to who?

tags: , ,

advertising tailored to meFacebook suggests that I, or my baby (???!), should learn to type and get a part time job.

Facebook knows my age, gender, relatives on face book (parents, siblings, cousins, nieces), apps I’ve installed and the advertisments I’ve dismissed because they were either ‘uninteresting‘ or ‘offensive‘ (e.g. Make-up, diet, cosmetic surgery, high-healed shoes). Facebook does not know about my schooling or employment.

What do you think? Should I give up my FT, rewarding job, have a baby, and get a part-time typing job working from home?

    I take it as a good sign that Facebook advertising is finding me 365 things to do in Birmingham; offering me £75 in M&S vouchers and suggesting ways that I could lose a stone. Somehow I don’t think it’s got me pegged either!
