See pics of women, free

Just now on Facebook I got the following advertisement:
I didn't quite react at the first glance, since every once in a while you get served the ads for "Russian ladies looking for love" etc. (hope I'm not the only one getting those). Then I realized that this ad was for Match.com! That's amazing. I clicked on it, and yes, it led me to: no.match.com.

The title of the ad suggests that it leads to one of the more sleazy sites on the Internet. If you do a Google search for free pics of women, you'll get the idea. Warning: NSFW!

I'm not convinced that this is how girls looking for a relationship would want their profiles advertised on the Internet. And it is yet an example of how a social website might try to capitalize on the personal information you've shared — in a way that would make you uncomfortable if you were made aware about it.

Shame on you Match.com! This is not how a responsible and respectable dating site would treat their users.
