Have any of you ever looked at the ads on facebook? I sure have. Something I've always noticed isthat every ad on my page was gay friendly. This got me wondering if this was purely coincidence or if it was planned...
To explore this further, I changed my sexual preference from Gay to Straight... Sure enough the ads changed focus from stereotypical gay interests (hooking up with other dudes, sexy underwear) , to stereotypical young straight guy interests (hooking up with 'hot chicks', getting wasted').
Once I got passed the whole "being offended by gay sterotypes thing", I realised that with a little twearking, this demographically focused form of advertising is a really neato idea.
