Does facebook want me to have an affair?

Facebook is either a great tool for staying in touch with friends or
The scariest data collection system ever, think about it they tend to know things that you would never complete on other websites! And what do they do with all the data that people volunteer to the big facebook corporation, well sell you to other corporations is the short and to the point answer.
Remember you are the product on facebook!
I have been on facebook since around 2007, if you look at my profile and most of it is locked down you will notice it clearly says married to Kate! (since 2005)
So when I logged out of facebook tonight I get this facebook
Meet Singles Near YOU!! No thanks, perhaps the people at have so much money they can chuck it down the drain ( I mean give to facebook) or the agency or people at just don’t know how laser targeted you can be with advertising on facebook.
Want to know how many men between the age of 20 -30 who live in Manchester and like Manchester United well that’s easy as facebook tells me it’s 64,420, but how about men 20-30 who live in Manchester and support Man City?
Must be a lot more as they say all Manchester City fans live in Manchester, actually the number is 27,580.
The options of finding out very specific information on facebook and then creating the right message to market is truly amazing, try yourself if you have the new graph search option.
Women who are mums aged 20 -40 and love cats and live in Cheshire
Men who are aged 30-40 that like photography and italian food and Jeremy Clarkson
Have a think what could help your business, who buys from you? And then go and have a search on facebook, use this link facebook adverts which providing you are logged in to the walled garden will get you to the right page.
And even if did it as a brand building exercise I am not really going to “like” the page, you could imagine that conversation when it feeds into my wife news feed!! I also noticed the same on my phone with zoosk popping up offering me the same option a few weeks back now
If you want help with this then you could speak with Mark as the saying goes he did that and got the “facebook” T -shirt as a surprise gift through the post as the adverts he ran on facebook got a 100{4d2303c3d7018ed3e1a955ec2105d2bcecc5b881e14ee890535c5ae577f46e7a} click through rate which took them by surprise!
Have any of you noticed weird adverts that make you think they are wasting their time with me? love to hear your feedback
