Customised advertising - another TM "feature"

Irrational behaviour and incomprehensible decisions 101 - this is the place. If they're really silly, you could win a chocolate fish.* (* Highly unlikely and they're only virtual chocolate fish)

Customised advertising - another TM "feature"

Post by digidog » Tue Sep 01, 2015 7:02 am

TM are about to bring in "customised advertising" -- ads which are targetted at tailored to the individual. So if you've been searching for butt plugs (for example) you'll see lots of lovely ads for similar items, depending on how well TM have profiled you. The mind boggles! This "feature" kicks off on 5th September 2015, unless you opt out. Luckily, that's easy. Just go to...

and click the ON button to OFF.

Of course you could just install AdBlock Plus and get rid of the ads altogether. ;-)
