Friday Question of the Day – How Much Do You Care About Your Privacy?

I know that’s a bit of a vague question so let me explain. I went to a garden store. I bought a plant. I paid cash. I came home, marveled at my beautiful new plant and then logged onto Facebook. I did not type anything, I did no searches on google or elsewhere. But all my ads on Facebook were for plant/garden stores. It totally freaked me out. Subsequently some friends have guessed that it’s possible because I had my iphone with me, with location services on, that Facebook knew I was in a plant store. Anyone else hear anything like this before? Do you turn off all location features on your phones? Or do you not really care? Has anyone else ever experienced what I did?
