Facebook Could Know You’re Pregnant Before You Do

In this episode of creepy social media platforms, we learn of the new ways the creepiest social media platform, Facebook, is getting even creepier.

An avid Facebook user reported that she had suddenly started getting baby and pregnancy ads on her Facebook timeline despite not being pregnant, neither having a child.

It’s actually not the first time that we’ve heard of this.

A while back, a father sued Facebook because the platform started showing his daughter pregnancy-related ads and this did not make him happy, especially after both he and the daughter realized that she was actually pregnant and Facebook got to know about it before she did.

However, this time around, the platform was wrong.

The user they were showing these ads to, was not pregnant and she was sure of it. So why would Facebook think that she was?

Well, turns out, she had forgotten to log her last month cycle in her period tracker and this could have been the start of the false ads.

We tell you how this happened.
