I've had to put both of my numbers on "White List" only to even get any respite from the Robo calls.

Facebook will reveal who uploaded your contact info for ad targeting

Facebook planned to require advertisers to pledge that they had permission to upload someone’s phone number or email address for ad targeting. That tool debuted in June, though there was no verification processand Facebook just took businesses at their word despite the financial incentive to lie. In November, Facebook launched a way for ad agencies and marketing tech developers to specify who they were buying promotions “on behalf of.” Soon that information will finally be revealed to users.

 

Starting February 28th, Facebook’s “Why am I seeing this?” button in the drop-down menu of feed posts will reveal more than the brand that paid for the ad, some biographical details they targeted and if they’d uploaded your contact info. Facebook will start to show when your contact info was uploaded, if it was by the brand or one of their agency/developer partners and when access was shared between partners. A Facebook spokesperson tells me the goal is to keep giving people a better understanding of how advertisers use their information.

Would explain the ad phone calls that I get. However, I have fun with them. Usually they just hang up after a certain amount of time, but I had one guy, sounded Indian, freak out and started shouting on the phone about how I was an a-hole for wasting his time. We were on the phone about 30 minutes. He was helping me read numbers off of my imaginary check, which kept being wrong numbers. I told him, oh wait, this is a upc label from my can of peas. The guy lost it and lost it completely. When a guy from India tries to cuss you out in English with a lot of passion, you can hardly understand what he is saying. It was very funny though.

When Face Fuck first came out I aired on the side of caution after seeing how crazy women went over it and insisting to me that it was a necessity.

More often than not I use female advice and opinion as a barometer and weather-vein, then set my course to 180...
