By Alex Ohanian & SevakKarapetyan

advertisers and privacy
Advertisers and Privacy

Advertisers gather our information to promote products of our interest.

In order for advertisements to give you something meaningful, they need your information.

Advertisements may inform us with the best product we need based on the information gathered from our previous searches.

“Intuitively, customers prefer personalized services to general services… General advertisements make consumers switch to a new service provider with personalized services.”(Ho & Sai)

advertisements and privacy
Advertisements and Privacy
  • Advertising agencies depend on our data (location, age, sex, & interests) to know what, when, & how to market their products.
  • “Yahoo, Google, Microsoft, AOL, and MySpace record at least 336 billion transmission events in a month.”(Louise Story)
  • “The Corporate capacity to scrutinize peoples lives has made great leaps forward in the past five years.”(Kannen)

Advertisements can have such a substantive influence on people. Advertisements can be viewed positively but there is a catch most of the time. Marketers may manipulate and intrude on our privacy, but they allow us the ability to compare all products and promote heroic figures for our kids. It is up to our own will whether or not to buy into them.
