The way in which online services serve up ads, or new potential “friends,” or otherwise use your online trail, can be unnerving.

A downside is some loss of privacy, as companies track you. The upside is that sometimes the big algorithm in the sky is helpful and serves up things that matter to you.

Here they are. Very satisfying.

For today, at least, Thank you big algorithm in the sky.
