    Last year, I happened to do a google search for 'haunted places' in my area, and came up with a list of several. To my surprise, a few of them were places that were already well known to me, including restaurants where I have dined frequently with family and friends and cemeteries I have visited off and on for years without noticing anything too uncanny.

    One thing stood out to me from the list. Among all the usual -- haunted pubs, inns, hospital and houses -- I noticed one haunted theatre in a city near me. Haunted or not, the theatre was a place that I had previously been unaware of. I wrote down the name of the place, plus that of a cemetery I had not yet visited with the idea that I might check them out some day.

    The very next day, I received a postcard in my mailbox, addressed, not to Resident but to me personally from the haunted theatre inviting me to a fundraising event!

    Coincidence or haunting?

    It still has me wondering.

    I had a similar online occurrence in late 2017 Cat. Unfortunately I can’t immediately recall the exact topic or subject matter. But in summary, I suspect like most of us who surf the web on our laptops or PCs we are not surprised to find Internet Explorer or Mozilla very frequently displaying banners/ads for a specific product or service we recently googled on that same device. Happens to me all the time.

    Though I don’t recall the exact topic I searched out, I can recall with certainly that I had done a search in Safari on my iPhone for something I’m convinced I had not previously searched for on my laptop. I recall that it was something super topical that came up on TV, caught my attention, so I grabbed my iPhone and searched it out.

    Damned if that same subject didn’t appear in an advertisement banner on my laptop’s Mozilla Firefox browser the next day. Those are two separate devices with two different operating systems, and two different browsers.

    The two devices are not synced in anyway. The only thing that I can quickly discern that the two devices have in common is I access the same email account from them both.

    I wish now that I had the presence of mind to immediately post the specifics to the PNF.net as it might have been more interesting and you all might have been able to use that info to give me some more specific explanations.

    Hi, I am a newbie here so hopefully, I can be productive and add a few experiences.

    I know a fair bit about Facebook and Internet stuff so you may find that Facebook Pixel is responsible for snooping around everyone's activity and collecting information. It's a piece of code that you also add to your website from Facebook which helps you find out more about your visitors from income to house price value.

    Google also has all this information via Analytics which is similar to Facebook Insights and Pixel.

    It's scary stuff!!

    Hi Steve and welcome aboard! Yeah, this tech stuff is getting out of control fast. Add in some AI and we're doomed. :eek:

    Many thanks.

    AI will be more of a threat than aliens apparently (so I read last week)

    that is a strange one there, unlike just getting banners or ads on your computer you actually got a physical mailing to your home.
    that truly is a 1 in a million chance isn't it, coincidence? I don't know,.... but one question to ask you is. did you go to the fundraiser at the location?, if so, did anything in particular stand out to you, anything odd happen, or anything else out of the ordinary.
