Jeffrey Mincey on what most people don’t know about browsing the internet.
For example, thanks to Google’s search engine, and Google’s ubiquitous ads and nearly as ubiquitous Analytics scripts, visitors to most websites are tracked as to the content they read, videos they view, music listened to, searches made, as well as browser and computer type. All that data is collected, sliced, diced, Julienned, and made available to advertisers and other ad networks so they can flip ads into your face that kinda sorta mostly maybe are relevant to your online profile.
What can you do to prevent the tracking? Some are doing it already.
That explains the proliferation of browser ad blockers such as Ad Block Plus and Ghostery that Mac users have installed to prevent or reduce the tracking. The end results may not be perfect, but with fewer advertisements that display on each page, those blocked website pages load faster and take up far less bandwidth.
