I've been recently freaked out by fb...
I thought it was just if I had the fb app or their messenger app on my phone. But it now starting to look like I don't even need it on my phone.
Want to be freaked out? Login into FB and go to settings and on the left go to Ads and then Ads based on my preferences/Visit ad preferences.
Start looking through your Interest and also the sections under Advertisers...
I was pretty sure fb was picking things off the phone mic. Not just things I was taking about with people. But even ads playing off my TV.
Anyways, the other day I log into fb to check if anything new has shown up after having the apps deleted from my phone and usually there has been nothing, but this time there was. It was Maldives. Which is fucked up because the subject has never come up ever in my convos or anything I've looked up on the net or come across. But a week ago we had friends over who were telling us about their vacation there. Then I realized that my wifes phone was on the table and she has both the fb app & messenger on her phone and I'm pretty sure that because we're tied together on fb as married, it added it to my fb ad preferences.
This is how everything will be. Your phone, TV, fridge. The mics will pickup audio around and be tied into ads.
I'm a super huge tech geek. But looking to retire away from technology might be a wise choice.
