target acquisition noise

you are a target market
Its interesting to watch how the adverts sent to me on Google and through Blogger are adjusting based upon the material I've been posting.

They seem to be quite sensitive to current posts and activity, so that I've had recent suggestions about bolt cutters, bicycle tyres and theatre breaks in London. None on 'heists' though.

Add to that the automatically generated posts on Twitter that are sensitive to words like 'estate agent', 'pheasant' or 'railway' and there's a whole microcosm of automatically generated 'stuff' happening behind the scenes.

Some would say this is responding to a target market. Others might suppose its all just noise.
