Twice last week, my wife and I had conversations in our living room on new topics. Within two days, my wife’s YouTube feed had suggestions for videos on those new topics. She had never viewed videos on those topics before, and probably would not have chosen to view any.
We have no voice assistants in our home, and no devices in our home are configured to respond to “Hey Google / Siri / Alexa / Whatever.”
I am aware that many of you experience this from time to time. Nothing new here. But sometimes it is more noticeable.
