Is YouTube Spying on Me?

Targeted advertising on the internet is starting to freak me out. I’ve been seeing a lot of eyeglasses commercials before videos play on YouTube lately. Does YouTube know that I wear eyeglasses? I’ve never searched for glasses on YouTube before. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever searched for glasses on anything before. And yet in the last couple of days that’s all that’s played before my videos. It makes me wonder……can they see me through my iPad camera? Are they watching me? Or do they have a fancy algorithm that knows there’s a good chance people who watch a lot of nerdy videos about movies, superheroes, and science fiction probably wear glasses?
