Now we fear web publishers analyzing and tracking our behavior on their websites for whatever they use it for. Disappearing are the mindless banners and fake flash games; now we find ourselves bombarded with ads that actually appeal to us. Many find this scary. Online behavioral segmentation is growing quickly in the marketers’ toolkit with approximately $4 billion projected to be spent by 2011. A strategy of tracking what people do, where they go and then presenting them with ads targeted to their interests is still fraught with challenges and rich with opportunities. Consumers, meanwhile, may struggle with these “Big Brother” techniques and other relationship dilemmas of how ads are served up to them. Drawing upon real stories, learn where those lines are and how to avoid crossing them </li></ul></ul>Panel Session #2a: Theme: Online Behavioral Targeting Title: Targeting Consumers in a Multi-Media World Moderator: Dr. Sue Fogel Panel Lead: Bency Thevalakara Time: 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm Details:
