    Default Fluff...how do you know your phone is listening...

    My friend and I have this thing where we joke about everything listening to us.

    I was at the cinema and a “holiday at home” ad came up and then this popped up straight away on my Facebook newsfeed. IMG_7206.jpg
    Then one day after work I called into my local butcher and when I got home, this came up...IMG_7207.jpg
    And now my friend just messaged me to say she was at the shops today and asked if they sell circulon snd now this popped up for her IMG_7208.jpg

    This happened to me with my mum actually we were discussing a specific location, she then went onto maps and typed in one letter and the place we were talking about was the first suggestion. It was also so far away from us too!!

    I 100% believe they do listen. Especially if Siri or similar is turned on. I always thought this. How else does Siri know you’ve said “Hi Siri” unless she’s always listening and then only activates when you say those words.

    A friend came over a few weeks back and she was talking about how her DSD loved Jojo Siwa then said something about her recently coming out or something (I can’t really remember the rest of the conversation). Later that afternoon I got this in my Facebook feed...

    I don’t even know who JoJo is bar the fact that she had a range of huge bows 🤷‍♀️

    My Mum bought my DD ring for Christmas and it was a little big. Mum was discussing getting it resized and that afternoon an ad for ring resizing popped up on her FB newsfeed.

    So this is a bit different but I went to the football today. This is an hour from where we currently live. I had turned the car off near my brother in law’s house, not far from where we used to live. Then I turned my car back on and this came up IMG_7372.jpg

    Was the footy in you calendar or did you get an email with tickets?

    This has happened to me with a restaurant booking before, also happens for places I go each week like work, daycare, swimming.

    Yes this does really happen. I have a family member high up in the military who keeps his phone camera covered with tape and strict audio off when not in conversation. They'd know better than me 🤷

    Yup. My DH and his ex military buddies don’t send normal messages - they use the programs that encrypt them.

    Yes. It usually tells me the time to get to work or home and even my son’s training.

    It was automatically saved in my calendar when I booked 🤪
