Your Friendly Algorithm

Your Friendly Algorithm

I am your friendly algorithm

                I know your deepest wishes.

I assess everything you do

                Your hits and all your misses.

I quietly watch everything

                What you watch, what you say.

I oversee you when you work.

                I record you at play.

You know that you can trust me

                I’ll never let you down.

Click that button. Buy it.

                Don’t go into town.

I present you with a smorgasbord

                Of lovely things you want.

Tantalising, sometimes surprising,

                All in your favourite font.

I listen as you talk,

                Noting what you mention.

Then send lots of adverts,

                Panda to your retention.

I am your friendly algorithm

                I panda to your needs.

Whatever obsession you might have,

                I know how it feeds.

I am your friendly algorithm

                I know your deepest wishes.

I assess everything you do

                Your hits and all your misses.

Every click on the internet is recorded and analysed. Your life is analysed. Your personality is analysed. Your phone and computer know more about you that you do yourself. They know your hidden desires. They can tell you how to vote.

In fact, they probably do tell you how to vote.

I'd like to hear from you...
