I wouldn’t touch Zuckerberg’s bane with the proverbial barge-pole, but it’s not just ZB that tries to learn about you. I recently bought a new watch from an on-line source, and was subsequently bombarded with ‘smart, directed advertising’ telling me to . . . errrr . . . yep, you guessed it, ‘buy a new watch’.
What’s so smart about an algorithm that tells you to buy a new ‘thing’ the very day you’ve just bought one?
