Flywheel ad in Instagram feed?

It seems that Instagram is sniffing my browsing history somehow and using it to serve me Flywheel ads in my feed. The reason I’m posting this here is that I think that is a bad thing an want to notice you guys about this.

I only use Instagram on mobile and Local is installed on my MacBook. I browsed the website in the past, but on my MacBook only. So there’s no way Instagram should know about me using Local. But somehow they do know and serve me Flywheel ads. I find that disturbing and even consider deleting my Instagram account.

Hope you guys can send out a message to Instagram that this is happening and it’s not okay.

Hi @wvanderzee,

I’ve passed this along to our marketing team.

I do agree that Facebook and Instagram’s retargeting is pretty crazy these days!
