I know, I should just ignore them. Normally I do, but sometimes they are just too off-the-wall.
For instance, several months ago I noticed that I started getting birth control ads. A lot. I guess that's what you get for having "female" and "in a relationship" in your info.
That went on for 3 or 4 months--the same ad, popping up every few days.
Then Facebook must have noticed that I wasn't clicking the bc ads, because it started giving me ads for pregnancy resource type things. Earlier today I had an ad for Planned Parenthood show up.
I was somewhat amused by the sequence (Facebook is trying real hard to generate revenue for itself), but now I am just annoyed. Anybody know a good way to block ads?
Somewhat tangential to this little series--today I twice got a "Think you'll be getting engaged soon?" ad. Okay, that's harmless enough. I've been "in a relationship" continuously for more than a year. Maybe Facebook's genius computers are starting to think it's time for a more permanent commitment.
Well, the ad itself was for an "engagement makeover"--so you can look good, apparently, when your boyfriend proposes.
What, precisely, is the purpose of an engagement makeover? I just don't understand it. Really, I'm sitting here trying to think of some kind of scathing social commentary on it and I've got nothing. It boggles my little mind.
Note to self: Stop reading the ads. Really. Just stop.
