        Ads of any kind just annoy me, I don't give two shits about it, if I'm looking for something that I need or want to buy I will look for it myself. I don't need your multicolored flashing shit on my screen.

              If someone brings you to the wine you want, it’s inevitable to see other wines, therefore you’re still able to experience that randomness

              When you get an add from something that’s assumed by google or what not, they give you more than one, their goal is to make you buy more shit, so going to show you more shit as well as what you could want, they always put that randomness

                I've never bought something becauae an ad for it was spammed in my face while online. If you want a sure fire way for me to not buy your product is to spam an ad for it in my face. I instantly hate your business when a pop up ad gets spammed in my face.

                    Im with Degrasse on this one. Tech is becoming far too intrusive in our lives. I can't stand that every single site wants to store cookies on my devices. It is an invasion of privacy.

                            I cant believe people expect these free apps and services to not sell your info.
                            Google search doesn't have to be free!
                            Your smart speakers are 30 bucks for a reason!
                            Choose between paying with your money or paying with your data.
                            Which would you rather give?

                                I have worked for Google, Facebook, and now am Marketing Manager for clothing. Believe me, if Google does a certain type of targetting, it's because it works. There are many A/B testing going on, and they just serve you the one that best works for them.

                                      The man that is so open the universe is also closed off in her personal "space". I love it as much as I find it ironic as fuck.

                                          I feel like these targeted ads are like when you're on your phone watching something or thinking of buying something that may be a bit embarrassing for you and someone you know snoops what on your phone and then someday they text you a link or buy you a gift of that emb thing and you feel invaded. it's like the same thing. it's invasion of privacy no matter if it's online or irl

                                              Simply put, it takes away a man's right and sense of discovery. And dehumizes us by reducing or completely removing human factor. While this may have advantages in reducing road accidents and human mistakes in manufacturing, it marginalizes all of us as a simple data point.

                                                Life in America revolves around consumer culture so you shouldn't really be surprised when corporations are using every dirty trick in the book to try and sell us shit. They will invade anything and everything to try and squeeze every dime out of you.

There are plenty of other apps that do this as well. Just look back through I.T. News circles and articles and you'll find plenty of evidence. The mainstream just doesn't pay attention to it.

There is a rating system so its not taking you to anything adult unless you ask it to and you can say topics you like or dont like, but you dont need to put those in. Its pretty fun from time to time.

When you take a course in Customer Service skills there is much to learn about making customers feel comfortable. About not invading their privacy, or rather invading it in a polite and brief manner.

Unlike old tom toms sat nav which never updated itself and i used to pretty much ignore it (regarding to traffic as it was always wrong)
