  8. 8. Advertising is Ruining the Internet ✤ Privacy (the lack of) + Censorship. ✤ Privacy: It creates an incentive to collect every single piece of data from users. Exchange user data with other services. Create psychological profiles. Micro behavioral change. In a very opaque way. All of this because more targeted ads = more money. ✤ Censorship: Big brands don't want their ads displayed next to "controversial" content. Don’t want to be associated with political opinions.
