do they keep track of what we're googling and stuff?
And they go by them.
I also sometimes get a pop-up ad saying ' Find a sex partner in ABERDEEN now' which is nowhere near me.
and lots of stuff about viagra. Why is the internet so sex obsessed?
well I don't want emails about getting laid, not atm anyway, maybe in about 40 years when I'm desperate.
How the fuck does the whole internet know I live in Sheffield? Does it read my DiS posts or something? It's kinda scary.
as when i log onto facebook in other countries i start getting adverts in the local language. more puzzlingly, this sometimes continues for weeks after i'm back home
telling me that All Smiles, the solo project Jim Fairchild of Modest Mouse and Grandaddy, were giving their new album away for free for a limited time.
This made me happy.

I remember when I was looking into matched betting I kept getting loads of gambling ads on facebook
i get a lot of ads for bands that used to be listed on my profile but aren't any more, or related to things people have posted on my wall
but i think it takes the likes/pages with it
cookies, clickstreams, IP addresses, plus details taken from registration and your profile activity.
I don't *think* Facebook would be able to access your Google search histories, unless Google has licensed access for Facebook (at a hefty price), which is also likely.
Caveat: I'm not an expert in IT, nor indeed in anything at all.
I've not seen a facebook add in years.
they're just text on the side of the page, just like the suggestions etc
and then beam it onto a big screen in the middle of a nightclub in Berlin
