Haven't they already been doing that? I mean I post about the dusty armadillo so it shows ads for that place.

So my next point...If i am already going to the Dusty Armadillo on a weekly basis ...what good is an ad going to do? You are really just showing me what i already am doing. . so i feel like you are not gonna get me to spend anymore extra money... because i am doing those same things anyway..
Now if say they would show me a different Venue such as Thirsty Cowboy..it's similar not exactly the same..I may go and i would have changed where i spend my money.
I don't understand how this is different or gonna work
