What do your Facebook Ads say about you?

HUH?

A few days ago I noticed that I was getting really targeted advertising campaigns focussed around Salt Bae, you know that guy who salts every type of meat available with the exuberance of a master. It was all because I viewed one measly video of a chef cooking a steak over an open fire.

I asked around and noticed that this kind of weird super specific advertising was happening to a lot more people than me. WISH (the company) was a big culprit of weird advertising, promoting a bib to catch your beard hair and Croc gloves?

In any case I saw this trend and found that it this type of advertising was common and even as specific as advertising products using your location and search history, freaky stuff!

Hopefully, there’s some use other than a beard bib for this hyper-specific localised advertising technique.
