This post started out with the intent to be about online privacy and advertising. I was going to talk about the issues raised at last month’s FTC roundtable on online privacy including behaviorally targeted advertising. Maybe even float around in cloud computing, the topic of next week’s session at the FTC. Talk a little about Facebook’s privacy woes in the aftermath of changing its privacy settings.
But I have bronchitis and a terrible sinus headache, so that post is on hold.
Instead, I am going to have a very little rant about the demographically targeted ads on Facebook.
This isn’t targeted advertising.
It’s spam. And it’s lazy.
