Ads follow me all over the internet
If I do a simple search using Amazon to find something of interest to buy or put on my wish list, soon afterward, I see ads on my writing site that never go away.
This is very bad news. I do not want to see ads that try to motivate me to spend money 24/7.
I think it is a form of brain washing.
If I wanted to buy something on Amazon, I would buy it, period, but if it is something I might not be willing to buy but still find it of interest to me, I keep seeing ads on my writing site appearing all the time.
On YouTube, when I watch a video , I see an ad to support removal of plastic from the ocean. This ad or a group of such ads about the same organization appears before I can start watching any YouTube video.
So why is this so? Well, a few months ago I donated to that channel to remove a pound of plastic. I received a bag with the logo on it to use as I see fit. But to be seeing these repetitious ads over and over again and again, it is just too much!
In addition to these redundant recurring ads on YouTube and a writing site, I have to deal with ads directed at me to DO THE FOLLOWING:
1. TAKE THE SURVEY. ARE YOU FOR OR AGAINST TRUMP? - YouTube
2. IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP - YouTube
3. DATE A LADY FROM MEXICO - writing site
4. BUY A NECK HAMMOCK - writing site
I could add more but why bother? People all over the internet know exactly what I am going through. There is no one on line who does not see this type of manipulation by the corporations to get you to spend money on their products 24/7 , based on your browsing history at Amazon and other websites.
