OH! And reason no. 83635238427345 why Facebook should be shot

Since hitting the 'cancel relationship' button, not only do I now get bombarded with adverts for dating sites which I am now eligable for (thanks for reminding me. Lonely? Lonely? Look at all my friends! Got hundreds of the little scamps, thank you very much! HA!)

...but just in case it all ended because I was getting a bit porky:

So yeah - single AND fat according to Facebook.

Lucky for you I'm not the kind of guy who says, "I told you so."

Agent Elle said...

Oh God.

I'm surprised those ads weren't followed by a Gilette ad. You know, in case it all gets too much.

I think I heard a rumour that George Bush is going to start at Facebook in January.

Robbie said...

I wouldn't worry too much about that. Facebook is evil. It's advertising to me for date websites and cruises. It just tries to get people in trouble.

If you click 'deceased', they send florist adverts to all your friends too.

You can't even tell the evil Facebook bastards that you're dead without 'em trying to sell something.

Do you use Firefox? If you do install this add on. Ad Blocker should do the trick. I wrote a post about the same thing on my blog site, but I couldn’t publish it. It was censored. They won’t even allow you to mention Ad Blocker!!!!

Can't believe the deceased thing!"!!

Facebook, that evil wench. When I changed my relationship status to single it did the same thing to me.

unbearable - Thank god for that, you cheeky little scamp!

elle - Yeah, DIY hanging kits. There's a lack of hair removal ads though I must say. Not going to be needing that stuff any time soon.

clarissa - I'd love to know what his targeted ads are. Guns and Age 3 reading books, perhaps?

robbie - Haha. I wonder if anyone bloke's been caught out due to their ad focus "Why are you getting ads for male porn?"

Rol - that is truly bad taste. Urgh. Thumbs down for that one.

mjohnson - I don't have firefox, but thanks for the heads up. I may switch over for some peace and quiet.

longredcape - Thank god, we are not alone. Well, we are. According to facebook.

Bastards. Again.

That is the very reason why I do not have my (non)status on my FB page. Far, far easier than dealing with their targeted ads.

i HATE the way Facebook thinks it can merrily skip into your brain without you noticing anything strange.

"Dear Facebook,
I can't help but notice you are trying to infiltrate my thoughts. I know you can't read my mind, so I know that you can read my "Interests" page. Therefore I deleted it. Now, all you know is that I was once listed as female, therefore you think I need a "Pink Patch", a "Celeb Diet" and an "Oscar Wilde T-Shirt" (OK, so I left a couple of my literary interests intact). I hate you.
PS. If it didn't mean complete social exclusion, I would delete my account."

Perpetual - a wise move. I am promoting myself as single for the time being, just to get the word out there n that. Ha ;)

blueskies - ARRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I bloody HATE that pink patch advert. It's the worst one! I can't believe they promote that crap. Seriously...I bet there's 14 year olds getting diet ads, it's wrong...

hahaha! and that's not even talking bout the multiple comments your friends leave on your site wondering what happened. that's why i never even put my relationship status. though if i were, i think it's been mostly "it's complicated" and nothing else. but i have to say i'm itching to put married and then after a few weeks change it to single haha!
