Oh, You Want To Call Me Depressed?!

Recommended Posts

So we all know that we are being tracked by our cellphones by now, right?  Well, I went to check some college football scores on an iPhone app and there was an advertisement at the bottom that read "Depressed?"  Ticked me off.  I do a google search about pain in my feet and now my phone is making assumptions.  

 

Yeah, well, I deleted your app.  Maybe the next advertisement I see from someone else will say "Feeling better?"  I will respond yes.  That's a fact.

I know what you mean. I keep getting spammed about weight loss. I'm sure it stems from being a member here. After all, the "gluten-free lifestyle" is the lastest weight loss fad.

One of my favorites are the google ads on this site.  We may have blocked it now but , if you are viewing a topic  about pizza - a Doninos or Papa John's ad would show!  :blink:

I don't use the internet on my phone a whole lot. Hilariously enough, when I do it is usually when I'm at a pharmacy after a visit to a doctor and need to call a pharmaceutical company I don't have the phone number to. (Bahaha... don't have the number to, that's hilarious too!) So if they're tracking my internet usage on my phone, I google a lot of contact information for drug companies. I've learned to store the contact information though so I've knocked that nonsense off for the most part.

 

On my computer I at least have an ad blocker installed in my browser. I don't need to be harassed by a billion companies based on my browsing history and IP address... thanks.
