Interesting piece by Ralph Nader over at Truthdig. "Advertising is destroying the Internet." The nub of it is summed up here... But does online advertising work for consumers? The Internet was once considered a less commercial medium. But today consumers are inundated with targeted ads, reviews, comments, friends’ reactions, and other digital data. Unfortunately for advertisers, consumers are not intentionally clicking on online ads in big numbers. As I say in the masthead for AdScam... "George Orwell defined advertising as the rattle of a stick inside a swill bucket."
George always did have a way with words.
