Just now A facebook ad came up asking me to make a profile and get started, Seriously ATS whats the deal??

If you're referring to the "Follow ATS" on Facebook and Twitter on the left and right side of the site, I put them there. We've had a Facebook and Twitter account for years, and recently changed they way we manage both. There are no direct links, so something else must have directed you to Facebook.

If you click on the Facebook icon in the upper right of the site, if you looked closely it sent you through a pass-through on a domain owned by us, That pass-through cleanses your referral and ensures FB does not know you came from ATS.

This is the Rant forum, Ill talk about whatever I want and blame whoever I want

Of course you can, but that doesn't make you immune to criticism, You can also show how naive you are for complaining about something ATS has little control over. I'm sure they have some, such as no porn ads, for example, but they cannot go through and pick and choose, ad by ad, which ones show up--especially since the ad engine works at least partially on what you have done yourself. I've NEVER seen a Facebook ad on ATS. Why is that? because I don't go to Facebook. The ads are targeted. You are the target and you are the one who pulled the trigger. Try to understand this small point. It's like stubbing your toe and blaming the Pope.

All I'm telling you is that you are ranting about your own actions, not ATS, and that's just silly.

Not true. I have not had a facebook account in three years, have not visited it since. I have never been to twitter or any other social media site. How's come I see it? Oh, skepticoverlord explained it. Nothing to do with my viewing habits.

hey there
haven't seen you since a "past life"
nice to see you've not been forced to "reincarnate"

don't look now!

I guess we should leave this website since it advocates the relinquishment of our personal privacy. So much for denying ignorance.
