Ads

‪#‎Ads‬. All around web, for the past couple of months, I was targeted and retargeted with all types of different ads, relevant to my various google searches, browsing, clicks, etc… Business as usual.

2 hours ago, over Google Hangouts, I mentioned to a friend of mine, that
“I’m going to gym”.

Went to gym. Came back.

Now, I’m i’m taking rest, opening Facebook and starting watching a music video, that my other friend have posted…

What do I see?

YouTube video starts with a 5 minute advertisement about “weight loss”.
I click on another random link… On a right hand side I see a banner about how to “trim your belly in no time"… i click — "our weight loss program…”

I mentioned “gym” via Hangouts, now I’m targeted with “weight loss” ads everywhere.

And there is no way back. We should part with our desires for “privacy” and leave this word to history books.
