Facebook sez, “Don’t mind us, we’re just whoring out your photos”
Matt pointed me in the direction of this today and I’ve got to say it’s not something I’ve noticed before, but is something I intend to do something about!
There’s a new bit in Facebook settings:
Interception dvd Facebook occasionally pairs advertisements with relevant social actions from a user’s friends to create Facebook Ads. Facebook Ads make advertisements more interesting and more tailored to you and your friends. These respect all privacy rules.
This is what happened to Peter Smith, in the image above who did think the image of the young single was pretty hot – she just happened to already be his wife!!!!!!
You can change this option here:
-> Settings -> Privacy -> News Feed and Wall -> Facebook Ads -> Appearance in Facebook Ads and click “no one.”
You could of course decide you want to part of adverts to your friends?!
