    As my wife was browsing facebook this evening a sponsored ad popped up with this title:

    "My child has flat feet. If i don’t get orthotics will it wreck their legs? Can a Physio help?" http://bodyworxphysio.com.au/child-flat-feet-dont-get-orthotics-will-wreck-legs-can-physio-help/

    I was interested to see what they said.

    Another blog was "Beat the Bunions!" http://bodyworxphysio.com.au/beat-the-bunions/

    I am not sure why she was targeted with certain ads but I can only surmise that since she has liked my facebook page etc that it shows up. Worth a read, you may learn a thing or two.

    "As a rule just because a child has flat feet doesn’t mean you should automatically fork out $800+ for a pair of orthotics they are likely to lose (besides ours are only $480 and probably the most comfortable in Newcastle)."

    Lost all credibility in the first two sentences.....Couldn't read past that dribble.

    People that also struggle to understand targeted advertising hurt my head and make me worry. These are the people who are preyed on by unscrupulous people promising fictional crap.
