You know, all these major companies do this supposedly to "make better ads" yet it NEVER works for some reason? Facebook has been doing it for years and I still get ads to stuff I'll never use in a million years.

What's funny is that they play it off as though ads are made for our we just dislike ads because they're not advertising things that we would buy.

-Entering codes after a 30 second commercial
-Ads on your FB timeline, instead of on the side
-Fake news stories on Yahoo
