FB is showing me multiple Jewish ads for over a year now
Posted by: pRICE cUBE

Disclaimer: I post this for light humor. I hope this doesn’t get political and banished to the other side.

For over a year now, FB is showing me ads for various Jewish Temples and Community Centers. It also shows ads for Jewish related devices such as Kosher products. I assume this is all algorithmically determined? Does everyone get these ads? Does Facebook know something about me that I don’t know about myself?

The new version of "My Tivo thinks I'm gay". I guess you can overwhelm the algorithms by signing up for all kinds of other religious stuff. I recommend the calmer ones... Buddhist, Shinto, etc...

Spare us the crude stereotyping.

Anyway, algorithms and AI lurch off the tracks all the time. You should contact the company and ask them why this occurs. I'm sure they are on the lookout for stuff like this.

It's time to embrace it and nip the tip.

I haven't heard someone other than a non-Jewish person use that phrase in the past 50 years.

Yo mama.

"oy vey" and "yo mama" are both funny and not stereotyping to me. Or whatever.

Pinterest sends me notifications for pins on tattoos. There truly is no plausible reason for it, but it's kind of funny, since I don't look at pinterest and don't care about tattoos.

Never tell FB to hide a lawyer lawsuit ad because you'll get bombed with them. I told it hide a Paraquat lawsuit ad and boom there was like 6 more different law firm ads within 24 hours.

Is it possible that someone else on your wifi network has been searching of viewing information on Jewish services, holidays or recipes...say a neighbor?

I always know what sort of things my son or wife might have been researching by the ads that show up in my facebook feed. Currently I am seeing a lot of ads for pillows.

I only check FB on my iPhone that always accesses a VPN. No one else has access to the account that I am aware of. I do not click on any links, stories, etc. I do not use FB marketplace. I turned off all the advertising linking.

My wife and daughters regularly and unironically use "oi vey."

Interesting lists, Deus. A lot of those words are in my vocabulary and I didn't realize their origin.



Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

It has deduced you are a member of one of the Ten Lost Tribes.
