How do you guys think targeted advertising works? Companys pay for information about your browsing habits, your location, who you know, where you shop etc.
facebook would be worth zero dollars if companies didnt buy this stuff.
Target, a retail store, follows what people buy and determines if they may be getting pregnant in the future, and sends out coupons for baby items to those customers. Not from buying obvious stuff either like diapers or something.
i accidentally ran across a website where I could buy 1 million americans names, address and phone numbers for about $15. I might try to dig it up, but I really wish it didnt exist in the first place.
