  • The video for the #1 plugin: Ad Blocker Plus
  • Probably the biggest Ad Blocker in history, since it does not play Flash files.
  • WTF
  • Taboo Maybe you’ve not really heard about Ad Blockers because it’s a taboo subject within the industry. It will probaby break the news big time in 2014, because it’s an issue that sells. And traditional media will not want to leave the opportunity to hit back to digital media. So please, do not panic when you hear about them.
  • Old stuff It’s not something new. TV has already had Ad Blocking thanks to DVRs. TiVo, the mighty DVR, has an ad-skipping feature. But, they won’t mention it on their website for reasons of plausible deniability in case of lawsuits.
  • Limited userbase One in four users, they say. My experience in Greece says that we are laggers in adopting Ad Blockers and less than 5% of the Internet population are using them. Even though installation is a breeze, Ad Blockers are mostly installed by Internet-savvy users, in my opinion.
  • Facebook is safe Who loses? Brands who advertise on publishers who either offer aggressive formats or who do not track advertising performance. Unlike them, Facebook tracks Ads CTR among thousands of other things to ensure a good user experience. Plus most advertisers use the CPC model on Facebook, so they don’t really lose out on their results.
