Netflix and Facebook compare your email address for ads

Privacy and Security

So there I was, browsing Netflix on my TV for like ever since nothing looked good. I gave up eventually and picked up my phone to browse something else for like ever. I ended up in Facebook and right away noticed a Netflix ad for one of the shows where I had lingered on the description long enough to remember that I had read it.

I glared at the TV where I had been browsing Netflix, then glared back at my phone. I grimaced, but decided it was just a coincidence because it was one of the new shows Netflix was really pushing hard right then.

The next day.
