I had a meeting with some social media marketers last year. During the meeting they told me that it's possible to target people based on the private conversations they have. I asked if they meant that facebook scan your messages (ie messenger/whatsapp) looking for keywords to present relevant ads to the user - they said yes and actual voice conversations. I dismissed it, thinking "bullshit" - they were young nerdy types and probably watched the matrix a few too many times.
Last week my wife met up with her friend at a gym club - they were talking about where to start swimming club for our youngest. Her friend suggested that she should try a pool called Cofton but she didn't know the timetable.
In her friends facebook feed that night was an advert for Cofton swimming pool, showing the timetable. I asked if either had mentioned Cofton in whatsapp/messenger or if they had googled it (as this would be more likely than some kind of weird evesdropping voice to text shitbot) but they hadn't.
In another incident (which shows that social media companies do actually trawl through your messages) my sis in law was presented with ad advert for a pendant engraved with the letters "DB" which is how she refers to her daughter when messaging by wife on social media.
Nobody seems to want to do anything about protesting this continuing menace, all hoping it doesn't affect them, well in that respect i can't have any sympathy. https://m.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/uk/dashcam-shows-lorry-driver-falling-asleep-before-motorway-crash-36375219.html

Dear Worried of Woolamaloo, Worry no more. Simply take a nude photograph of yourself and send it to us and then you can sleep safely knowing that nobody will be looking at nude photographs of you. Except us of course who will all be crowding round the screen to have a good laugh. Yours sincerely, eSafety.
