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 convenience....like we just dislike ads because they're not advertising things that we would buy.

In reality, they are just tracking what you do and how you avoid the ads. That way they can figure out new ways to get you to see them.

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

etc....

Targeted ads are getting creepier and creepier. I swear to god, anything I watch on Netflix becomes a recommended category of videos on Youtube, even when I watch 5 minutes of it and stop watching because it sucks.
