Data point

The current top adverts served to my GMail account are:

  • Ladies’ Coats and Jackets – Plus Size 12 to 32
  • Navy Nightdresses – Amazing Choice of Comfy Nightwear From Cute Cotton to Sensual Satin!
  • Need a New Bank Account?
  • Need No-Win No-Fee Legal Advice
  • 1000 Leaflets Only £15!

Google thinks I’m a curvy, litigious woman who needs to print flyers. (This was served next to XOYO’s mailout, so possibly a musician?)

Twitter thinks I should follow:

  • a couple of northern soul DJs
  • Verso Books
  • Handley-Page Victor XL231
  • Adam Kotsko

I think Twitter may have stolen a march on Google somehow. Update: I just asked Soizick about this and GMail serves her NO ADS. She controls the horizontal and the vertical, and all your bases are belong to her.

  1. Yeah, Facebook’s been pitching me ads for the UK’s top high-net-worth divorce lawyers for the last year and a half. Come on, Facebook. Forget your lunatic misjudgement of my net worth, can’t you even tell that I’m NOT MARRIED? It’s right there on my profile!
