If you are interested in who has access to the data sets I'm talking about in this thread, go to Facebook->Down Arrow in Top Right->Settings->Ads->Advertisers.

These advertisers all "know me". The only one I remember giving data to is Nintendo.

BTW, just because somebody has access to huge personal data sets doesn't mean they know what they are doing.

I am highly unlikely to buy a Maserati, and certainly won't be buying one in Scottsdale. I don't see myself buying real estate on the "NJ Gold Coast" soon.
Lots and lots of car dealerships. I'm guessing that comes from when we bought the minivan a year ago (time comes for us all) and I filled out contact forms to get quotes from multiple Honda dealers. Somebody is monetizing their CRM database.
This one is just insulting.
This stopped my heart for a second but turns out to be a TV show.

Lots of Netflix shows, including Roma. Interesting that they are uploading customer lists and spending money with FB to advertise to subscribers.
No political advertisers, which is interesting. I would love to see this page for a middle-aged, female registered-Democrat in Cedar Rapids right about now.
