Facebook is promoting promiscuity
For the past few weeks there has been something about Facebook that has been gnawing at me. I have not been able to put my finger on it until today.
On a regular basis I get messages such as 'Find your target audience' as Facecorp (lets call FBs parent that) tries to persuade me to buy ad space as part of their monetization efforts.
Today I started realising that I am getting fed ads that simply do not correlate with my profile. Facecorp knows I am in a relationship (and have been for 25 years and 2 days) but keeps targeting singles ads at me.
I like to think I can control my hormones however for the weaker (and more gullible) amongst us it could lead the unwary into life choices they may regret. Being recommended "Boiler repair services" is one thing however the same can not be said for 'finding hot singles'.
I am not moralistic about this, however it could give Facebook a tawdry image if not controlled.
Come on Facecorp you know enough about me to be smarter than this.
