Have you heard all the talk that the Facebook app is secretly ‘spying’ on us?
Well.. I’m not convinced but apparently a couple has come up with ‘proof’ that it’s actually happening.
They suspected that ads on Facebook were being targeted at them by listening to conversations. So they decided to test the theory by talking regularly about something they didn’t need or want – cat food (they don’t have a cat).
The couple spent the day talking about ‘cat food’, ‘buying cat food’ and ‘which cat food should we buy’. Two days later ads for cat food started appearing on their Facebook feed.
Do you think Facebook is actually spying on us?
