When Contextual Ads Attack

Sometimes Facebook gets a bad rap. But I love Facebook, I mean, I defended Facebook back when MySpace looked like an actual competitor (That links to my old Rolling Dice column in the long-dead Faster Than The World mag). I defended Facebook’s first privacy oops over public feeds. I’m fascinated by what Facebook and social media are doing to society, and to romantic relationships.

But Facebook hasn’t been returning my love recently. This was not my favorite targeted ad ever.


That one got me thinking about search terms and ad targeting, and I didn’t really like where that was going.

But after this, Facebook, I don’t know if we can be friends anymore.

I'll have you know, Facebook, that I'd spring for the full price boob job.

    Facebook is really best if you don’t give it your soul. Or at least lie to it from time to time. I’ve lied about my Birthday, just to see what happens 😉

    As for the boobs… I think given my reputation it is best if I keep my mouth shut.

    I can’t stop wondering what interests I’ve picked to make me seem like a good candidate for dating smart guys. I mean, it’s hardly the worst demographic (not like NEEDING NEW BOOBS!), but still…
