Last night I saw a commercial for the Freedom from Religion Foundation on television. My wife turned to me and said, "that's your group". I said, "yes, it is". But it occurred to me, was this a commercial targeted at me? We have DirecTV. I used to work for DirecTV as a system engineer and I know that there are commercial breaks that can have commercials inserted in the stream that are targeted for specific markets and even for specific individuals. Because I am on this site did ATT collect that information and send me that specifically targeted commercial? Or am I just being paranoid about how companies and governments spy on us and target us with information?

Hard to know the intent behind it, if we didn't get to see it. I LOVE the "I'm Ronald Reagan, unafraid atheist....."

We're personally targeted all the time from Facebook, Google, Amazon, etc. It used to puzzle me when I saw an ad on Facebook for something I looked at on Amazon. Now I've come to expect it though I like to think it doesn't influence my online purchase decisions.

Nope. Not being paranoid. You have every reason to suspect that.

Creepy TV ads can now target individual viewers

Ew indeed!
