Facebook's Scary Advertising Algorithms...

So I logged on to Facebook and, while scrolling down I spot the following "Suggested Post", AKA "Sponsored" Ad:


Now, "Suggested Post" means that someone paid money to Facebook to make that Ad run on pages of people who may be likely to buy the product.

But I have commend Facebook on this placement. I wouldn't call myself old exactly. I mean, I'm 49. But the fact that I do have a doctorate, coupled with the fact that I'm not exactly young, sure made the product Ad stand out.

I'm not buying it, but I guess I am hereby advertising the shirt! (Not with a link, though. I mean, I get nothing in return...)
