Ad Serving

The Internet thinks it knows me.  I check out a couple of motorcycle sites and the advertising to which they decide to expose me suddenly becomes filled with –  not ads for bikes (they clearly assume,  correctly, I already have one)  but to “meet single women near you”.   

That is pretty tiresome.  The last thing I want.  Needless to say, I do not click.

Now, it is taking another tack.  I just checked out what was on TV tonight, and clicked on QI to see who the guests are (Pam Ayres, Johnny Vegas, Alan Davies and Sean Lock) and then clicked on the next show which just happened to be another one by  Stephen Fry; Out There.  (Stephen discovers what life is like for gay people in Brazil, Russia and India.)

Suddenly all the ads change to “Meet gay men near you”.  

So.  Not interested in women?  Must be gay!

I wonder what they target sheep farmers with?

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

    Coincidentally I just looked up the singer songwriter mentioned on my FB page and the very next click on Google gave me an ad for a retirement home.
