AdTheorent Targets Ads at Your Family

Predictive advertising company AdTheorent has announced a product that sends ads to friends and family of targeted individuals. Clients send the company a target list; AdTheorent matches it against its 740 million device database, finds other devices in the same physical household, and serves ads on those devices. So those red shoes you didn’t buy can now chase your significant other across the Internet. It’s really just household targeting but it sure sounds annoying.
