Google ads is lightweight compared to other tactics. Every join a website that wants you to provide answers to secret questions as a "security
measure" - personal questions? Absolute and total data mining.
And heuristic checksums are all the rage now. Imagine web spiders that can crawl the web looking for your IP, username, or even just your grammatical
patterns, and literally build a personality profile of you, if enough is out there, based upon keyword usage, frequency and repetition of terms,
predispositions, sites you visit, stated interests?
It's way,way, way deeper than Twitter... though Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Myyearbook, etc... are ingenious because they can trick you into just
handing over tons of personal info not only willingly - but obsessively!

ETA: Oh and a real world use? Politicos commissioning studies about which words, other than proper nouns, tend to trend. Then write speeches literally
dripping with the words that most often trend at any given time. Pure and instant Pavlovian slavishness accomplished.
