Targeted

Facebook is suggesting that I view a video explaining the amazing secret that helped Bruce Lee achieve great success and get everything he wanted in life. Given that Lee died at the age of 33 and I’m already over 40, I couldn’t imitate Lee’s life journey even if I really wanted to.

Few things are more ridiculous than targeted marketing.

    So what about your Internet viewing history made Facebook think that you’d be interested in such a video?

    Well, every time I open your website, I get ads offering to refinance my mortgage (which I never had, paid cash for my house 20 years ago) — so the Internet doesn’t seem to know that much about me.

    I never get old man ads, like for Viagra or hearing aids.
