No, I Don’t Want That Book

As is all too common on the internet different companies and sites use my browsing history to recommend something else they’re selling. For example, I clicked on some travel ad on Instagram and that same company popped up in a promoted tweet on Twitter. Just ugh.

But I also tweet quire a bit about the presidential race. And as a result I’ve now been seeing promoted tweets from Trump selling signed “limited editions” of The Art of the Deal. First, the book is priced astronomically high. More than $150. Second, I have no desire to read the book. Third, there is no scenario in which I’d support him or his campaign.

I just wish Twitter would get the message. Are there any ads on social media that keep popping up in your feeds no matter how many times you skip over them?

  1. Lol, of course.
    I wouldn’t be buying anything Donald Trump either *shaking my head*, Even free couldn’t entice me to support him in any way.
    Gaming crap ends up in the ads section of my social and news media a lot more often than I like.
    I understand the needs for ads in order to generate revenue, but is it really necessary for every page click to generate more ads?

    • Is it necessary? No. Ha. I sometimes get games in my ads when I randomly look up info for releases or trailers or something. But I don’t actually buy any kind of video games. I only have two for my Xbox One I’ve had for a year.

  2. Games and books. Always the same ones. I was an avid gamer for years (still try when I can) but it feels like the same game is constantly shoved down my throat. I yell at the monitor sometimes that I will play when I am damn good and ready! Oh the joy of “cookies”.
