EFF has a nice article explaining how to turn off Googles new "privacy Sandbox" and why you should. It's not about privacy, it's about cornering the ad market.
Remember, these settings are not only in the Chrome browser, but in the latest versions of Android itself.
In short: Three-dot icon (⋮) > Settings > Privacy & Security > Ad Privacy

#Microsoft keeps playing "spot the ad disclosure" — now, its latest test doesn't even have a disclosure on indivdual ad units.
They're not alone. X has tested ads with no disclosure.
Is this a trend, and can it actually benefit marketers?

1983 ad for King Conan 20, featuring some very early Marc Silvestri artwork (which was inked by Marie Severin). This ad was presumably put together before Marvel changed the series title to Conan the King with that issue.

Ever wonder why people were buying those baby alligators that got flushed into NYC’s sewers? Check out this page from the 1938 Johnson Smith & Co. catalog. I’d pay a buck fifty for a singing, laughing baby gator.
I’m a little more surprised that they added LARGER sizes due to “great demand.” How exactly does one pack a sixty inch(!) alligator? Did the Postal Service charge extra for handling?

It’s that time of year for dungeon art. 1 of 1 acrylic on hard rock maple.
I'm fascinated with the extent to which space imagery injected itself into unrelated fields post-Sputnik. This ad is for the high-end furniture company Dunbar, the home of noted designer Edward Wormley. They focused exclusively on Modern styles, and since rockets were the future we end up with this weird juxtaposition of elements....
Date uncertain, but I've found other Dunbar ads following this format from 1957-1962.

6/6 PS 2: It would have been useful if IKEA had also made it easy to find wallpaper-sized images of its many shelves and cabinets. It's not available in any predictable place - not on the IKEA India website, or its social media properties across Twitter/X, Facebook, or Instagram.
4/4 And that was my highlight of the jury session - to listen to, and debate multiple perspectives on some of the ads that I liked/loved last year, and see them in a new light!
And today is the grand event, in Mumbai!
Congrats to all the winners!

People: You should be afraid of targeted #advertising, it knows everything about you!
Targeted advertising, to me: “The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection”.
(True story. That one comes up a lot. I have no idea why.)
Is anyone still charging by impressions? i.e. counting the number of times ad content is served?
Last time I worked directly with website advertisements was before Google existed. Even then #CPI was common because it was easy but understood to be entirely unsustainable…
The CEO of a major network was completely honest about it when he sd "Trump might be bad for America but he's great for [insert any commercial broadcasting station here]"

A true story and an analogy:
A few weeks ago I got a huge tick
I didn't notice for hours, by the time I found it - on my tummy! - it was extremely well embedded in
We have a lot of experience with ticks, although this was the biggest yet
We carefully tried to roll it out using various tick pulling instruments
Every time we pulled gently, I could feel it clamping in deeper, more grasping
For the tick, there was nothing else, it had everything to cling on for, everything to lose
I'm reminded of this tick, when I read about the #fossilfuel industry that refuses to give up in the face of cheaper competition, in the face of massive opposition, in the face of actual #extinction :XR:
I got the tick out eventually, not cleanly, I had to pick out the last parts of its head and there's a small scar
CloudGlare's business model is not about #advertising. That's for the visible #antagonists. If you want to wait for CloudGlare to start visibly monetising access the way the visible players do then you are missing the point — and you'll be waiting a long time.
CloudFlare's #power comes from the fact that they're unseen.
That's how they can extract the most data from us, and feed it into machines that serve *them*. CloudGlare, with other dotCons, is the attack on democracy they blame Trump for.
Occasionally seeing new #companies / #business accounts on #Mastodon and other #Fediverse sites. While I personally don't have a problem with #businesses, especially #SmallBusiness, using Fedi for #WebPresence / #promotion (in fact I see it as wider adoption), I feel like they don't always get an accurate picture.
This isn't like corporate #SocialMedia, were you just blast your message and hope it's either picked up by the algorithm or pay for it to be broadcast. You have to take steps to get people to spread your posts organically, which means making a direct appeal to your customers. I would personally follow brands like MSI, Oracle, and O'Rielly Media on here, if nothing else then to see what they're up to, but only if they didn't try to flood my timeline with boring #advertising.
This is where promotional deals, use tips, and just interesting content can go a long way. Most people don't mind for-profit posts, they're just tired of seeing #ads for things they don't care about.
#Youtube (and presumably other sites) are trying *so hard* to muscle their way past people's #AdBlocker & you have to wonder what the f*ck they tell companies who pay for those ads - like, does anyone really belive that an ad will work, or really do anything other than make people mad at you, if it's delivered by way of kicking your way into people's lives against their explicit protest...?
I was also triggered by this tagline on the #Coral website:
> "A local AI platform to strengthen society, improve the environment, and enrich lives"
"A local AI platform to go the last mile and know everything about you" is probably more #privacy accurate.
From Schneider National, this move seemed innovative and daring. But for a company who stands for "Stevie Wonder Institute For Trucking", it smacks of desperation. #ATS #Gaming #Advertising #Swift
#GOP has zero in terms of policy proposals supported by a majority of voters polled
They can't win a fair #Election promoting their actual #Fascist agenda (like ending #SocialSecurity #PublicSchools & #Libraries)
So they use dirty tricks, lies, #VoteSuppression, #gerrymandering, & #MoralPanic to distract folks from the issues
So, the whole thing where #CanadaPost has been #illegally taking #information from the #mail you receive, including your #name, #address, and the #retailers you are getting #packages from, and building a #marketing #database from it, which they then #sell to #advertising mailing list services, is ~~interesting~~ #infuriating.
"Oh, but you can opt out!" they say.
It should be opt-in, of course, but then no one would do so.
So go to opt out... well-played, Canada Post.

The discussion really has changed the past decade. A decade ago, one didn't hear this view so often.
Advertising on Pirate Sites Outlawed in Ukraine Under New Law
@fixatedpersonsunit NB, the "Banksy" quote is actually adapted from "Death, Phones, Sissors" by Sean Tejaratchi published in Crap Hound in 1999:
"While the risks continued to grow (e.g., a rising youth mental health crisis, widespread collection and sharing of sensitive health and location data in a post-Dobbs landscape), there had been no meaningful change in the [advertising] industry."
Block ads on your networks now.
And the incentives are all wrong. From platforms to publishers & ad networks they've spent every effort to make sure those ads get to our devices.
Now, predictably, the tech is going to dictators & being used to hack us.

#Vivaldi says no to #Google Topics in its browser https://www.ghacks.net/2023/09/09/vivaldi-says-no-to-google-topics-in-its-browser/ "Google's euphemistically named #PrivacySandbox or Ad Privacy feature is a topic of hot debate. ... [I]t still relies on the profiling of users, is said to give Google even more control over the advertising market, and is the first time that an #advertising solution that includes #tracking is integrated natively in a web browser." 1/2
Are there actual numbers on YouTube bounce rate and earnings effects of non-skippable ads?
I don't know if I should leave them on or off on existing content before youtube takes that ability away. I always assumed the bounces wouldn't be worth it but I'm not a marketing/advertising guy. I just wanna laugh with chat and play video games
〝Adtech companies work in the dark and effectively keep advertisers locked out of these transactions. The lack of control and oversight has led to consequences that overwhelmingly harm advertisers and society at large.〞
You need to go further than that. Much further.
We need a Commission of Experts in various fields that will assess all products & services that come to market so EU citizens can get a balanced description instead of the lies & personal targeting of #advertising, which is all we currently have.
This would be very good for small, local producers of excellent products/services who cannot compete with the marketing/lobbying budgets of (US) megacorps.
What is remarkable is just how much these #technoFascists must spend on #advertising, to stop the press from reporting on thr abuses. A regular person will never hear about these abuses because of this #bribery.
If only we were organised with fun leaflets to print and share.
Someone from "Apple WebKit" just submitted a proposal to the W3C's "Private Advertising Community Working Group" on GitHub, so I hope everybody is ready to resist a whole new round of bullshit:
I haven't read any of it yet, but I haven't seen anything good come out of this group yet.

The Visit Iceland folks made a giant functioning keyboard that horses can type on so you can “Outhorse Your Email” while you take a vacation.
“A 19th century printing house would be remiss without a narrow sans serif in its arsenal. These types, cut from wood in large sizes, were developed to meet the growing advertising needs of industrial production. In their quest to fill the page with the maximum amount of ink, the poster grotesk sets dark and narrow with minimal spacing, forcing letters into uniform lockstep.”
