How To Stop Facebooks Targeted Advertising

 

I mean really,  Facebook is  scary sometimes because you may be looking at something on instagram or another website and then next time you go on Facebook there it is in an advertisement. I find it so invasive. 

This has actually been researched and written by By Kim Komando | The Kim Komando Show. So thanks to her.

If you want to stop this invasion of privacy here is how to do it

 

You can do the following on Facebook’s desktop website, and you can also access ad preferences through your Facebook app. From the site, click the on the downward arrow in the upper corner and click on Settings. Click on Ads on the left side. This opens the “Your ad preferences page.”

Start with the Your Interests section. Click on this to see a list of topics Facebook thinks you’re interested in based on your activity.

Once you’ve reviewed your interests, check out the Advertisers section. This works just like interests. You can choose to hide ads from particular advertisers, which is useful if you’re annoyed by a specific ad popping up all the time in your feed.

Tweak the information Facebook uses to target ads

The next section on tap is called Your information. This is the data Facebook uses to help advertisers target ads at you. The categories include relationship status, employer, job title and education. The toggle switches on the side let you choose whether or not to allow advertisers to use these. Feel free to turn them all off. Also, take a peek at “Your categories” in this same section. You can nix these as well by clicking on the X.

Adjust your Facebook ad settings

Click on the Ad settings section to expand it. Here is where we can make substantial changes to throw targeted advertisers off your tracks.

Ads based on data from partners: If you already see the words “Not allowed” here, then you’re good to go. Otherwise, expand this setting, which controls “ads based on data we receive from partners about your offline activity.” Yeah, that does sound a little creepy. In the drop-down box, choose Not allowed.

Ads based on your activity on Facebook Company Products that you see elsewhere: This section applies to websites, apps, and device that use Facebook’s services to serve up ads outside of Facebook. This is why you might see the same ads lurking on both Facebook and seemingly unrelated websites. Look for the drop-down menu at the bottom and select “Not allowed.”

Ads that include your social actions: This setting lets you control whether or not Facebook can use your activity in ads aimed at other people. For example, a Facebook friend might see an ad for a page that you’ve liked on the service. The two options in the drop-down menu here are “Only my friends” or “No One.” Choose “No One” to keep yourself out of these sorts of ads.

Hide ad topics lets you block ads related to the potentially sensitive issues of alcohol, parenting or pets. You can choose to hide these for six months, a whole year or permanently.

Troubling Water – Life or Death💦

 

Water is the driving force of all nature – Leonardi Da Vinci💦

There was an article in my favorite health magazine called ‘Nature and Health’.

The article started off with a question “Is your water an elixir or a dangerous drink” and I believe that to be an important question.

I sadly have to say there is a number of friends and acquaintances around me that have the dreaded disease cancer. My first question as anyone who knows me is are you drinking enough water. 9 times out of 10 they will say “probably not” or yes I drink at least 4 or 5 glasses a day. Sorry not enough. If your body is not flushing your toxins from your body then your body holds on to them. That is not good when you have such a destructive disease running around your body.

Tap water

Aluminum, sulfate, ammonia, chlorine, hydrofluorosilicic acid, polyacrylamide, rust, slime, algae, asbestos, detergents, petrol, pesticides, pharmaceutical medications, faecal matter, herbicides, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, chloroform, copper, mercury, nitrates, cryptosporidium, Guardia, viruses, bacteria, blue-green algae.

Yep most and more  chemicals will be found in your  tap water. No Kidding. So many chemicals I can’t even pronounce their name.

In fact Western Australia Water Corporation recommends that babies under three months do not consume their water due to high nitrate content.

The ABC confirmed that PFAs (polufluoroalkyl chemicals) have not been banned in Australia. This is used to create non stick cookware and fire fighting foam. This chemical has been found in over 70 sites in Australia and as far as they know. Over 6 million Americans are drinking water that contains PFAs above the EPA after level.

This chemical is linked to immune system suppression, cancer, brain damage, nervous system damage, fertility problems and hormone disruption.

Look I could go on and on but you need to read this article for yourself it is very enlightening and I think you really need to think twice about what you are drinking.

Bottled Water

Every minute a million bottles of water are bought world-wide.

Not only is that an environmental nightmare most bottled water does not match the labels and 93% of samples analyzed showed micro plastic contamination researched by Natural resources defense council 

Some of the contaminates in bottled water is phthalates, mould, microbes, benzene, trihalomethane and arsenic .

Brita water filters are ok especially if you are unable to carry your own water on flights. Its better than nothing but does not remove the chemicals completely.

This is where I am putting a word in about the Kangen Water it really is the best you can buy. 40-year-old company and a product that is unsurpassable.

It is medically registered water restructuring system and as they say Gold Standard pure water. Kangen filters remove all the impurities and then alkalize the water plus give it negative charge so it can pass through our positively – charged cellular aquaporin and make the water molecules minuscule for  ultimate absorption. Great for hydration and optimizing nutrient assimilation and eliminating toxins.

Cancers cannot survive in an alkaline environment and Kangen water is considered an anti cancer aid.

Wether or not you consider this machine it is up to you but I have made you aware of what you are drinking in your tap and bottled water and urge you for your health and the health of your family and the environment to consider this machine. I own two, one in the States and one in Australia and they are worth every cent.

A la sainte terre – Saunterers

This was on FaceBook today – Historical Snapshots

I thought with everything moving so fast these days we should all learn to saunter through life and smell the roses. Look around and realize the beauty around us.

Hiking – “I don’t like either the word or the thing. People ought to saunter in the mountains – not hike! Do you know the origin of that word ‘saunter?’ It’s a beautiful word. Away back in the Middle Ages people used to go on pilgrimages to the Holy Land, and when people in the villages through which they passed asked where they were going, they would reply, ‘A la sainte terre,’ ‘To the Holy Land.’ And so they became known as sainte-terre-ers or saunterers. Now these mountains are our Holy Land, and we ought to saunter through them reverently, not ‘hike’ through them.”

Did You Know – 12/13/2017

 

  1. In 1904 a magazine advertisement, ran by the Cooper Underwear Company, started advertising the T-shirt not as an underwear item, but as a regular piece of clothing. The ad showed a masculine guy wearing the product, which had the following tag line: “no safety pins, no buttons, no needle, no thread”. The purpose of the ad was to show the clothing item in a new light. The company wanted to re-brand the product and to market it as a comfortable piece of clothing that doesn’t require the replacement of any buttons. The T-shirt was, thus, marketed to bachelors, who had no women around to sew back the ripped buttons on their shirts.

2.   Eating cheese in moderation is linked to a lower chance of developing heart disease or having a stroke

3.  A one dog year is not equal to 7 human years. Dogs don’t age parallel to people, they actually age more quickly at first, then slow down. Depending on their size and breed, a 1-year-old dog is about the same as a 15-year-old person a 2-year-old dog is like a 24-year-old person and every year after that is equal to about 4-6 human years

 

4. There is a wrapping paper set that lets you wrap a stack of presents so they look like a cheeseburger.You can purchase the sets on http://www.giftcouture.comhttp://www.giftcouture.com/product/cheeseburger-wrapping-paper

 

5. As of the third quarter of 2017, Facebook had 2.07 billion monthly active users. In the third quarter of 2012, the number of active Facebook users had surpassed 1 billion, making it the first social network ever to do so. Active users are those which have logged in to Facebook during the last 30 days.
