How Targeted Ads Work

How Targeted Ads Work | eklectic.in

Do you get that creepy stalker feeling when seeing some ads? What you are seeing are retargeted advertisements. Retargeted ads are designed to capture the attention of the browser-window shoppers of the internet. While we continue our research around the web, they are tailored to redirect us back to just the right pair of socks.

If you are a website owner — like eBay, flipkart or Amazo — ad tech companies provide a few lines of code for your website. Whenever someone visits your site, the code drops a browser cookie that will mark you anonymously as someone who has visited this site. After that, whenever you load Facebook or any other website with ads, the advertising networks will look at the cookies on your computer using the information about which websites you’ve visited to choose which ad to display.

The Medium Is the Message, 50 Years Later


The Medium Is the Message, 50 Years Later

This year marks the 50th anniversary of eclectic Canadian media theorist Marshall McLuhan's famous work, Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man , which builds upon his famous aphorism: “The medium is the message.” Understanding Media propelled McLuhan into the realm of pop-culture priesthood. Twenty years ago, in the introduction to a re-print of Understanding Media , renowned editor Lewis H. Lapham wrote that much of what McLuhan had to say made a lot more sense in 1994 than it did in 1964, what with two terms of Reagan and the creation of MTV. Twenty years after that, the banality of McLuhan’s ideas have solidified their merit. Don't have a copy of McLuhan's Understanding Media? Get it here!
