facebook, take two

Why is it that you always too often put a “miracle pregnancy — how to overcome infertility” ad in my sidebar? As far as I know I haven’t told you about our struggles. Is it just because I changed my relationship status to “married” last year and still haven’t listed any kids? Or a cruel joke from the universe? Either way, I’d appreciate it if you stopped that.

sincerely,

  1. That is incredibly creepy! Do you think FB monitors the sites you surf while you are signed in? I bet it does. Evil Bastards!

    Dear FB: You exist to make me jealous of friends with kids. NOT to follow me to the dark side of my pain. Thanks for asking.

  2. This is yet another reason to stay of FB!

    I got a pamphlet for Essure in the mail on Monday night. You know what that is? Some sterility procedure for women who “are finished building their family.” WTH?! Seriously?!! HOW am I on THAT mailing list!?

  3. I’ve seen those ads too. They are just painful. And I wonder if Leslie is right and they are monitoring what sites we visit??? Scary stuff!!!

  4. Leslie & egghunt — I wouldn’t be surprised at all… :o

    suchagoodegg — ouch. That’s tough, I’m sorry. I’ve heard from friends that got baby shower mail after getting a “due date ticker” and then having a miscarriage… as if anyone needed a reminder. Did you complain to the company / sender?

  5. Just another reason why I don’t have FB.

    Yes, they do.

  6. omg. I get those ads too, and my facebook world knows nothing about our infertility. They are offensive, seriously. It never occurred to me that FB could monitor my activities outside of FB. Creepy.
