this is not really about ATS, couldn't decide where to ask about it.

this morning i went to youtube to look up a video to use in a post. when the page opened i noticed a blue banner under the address bar. as i read it, i was surprised to see the last sentence of the last post i made in a thread here. the banner appeared to be advertising a link, i clicked it and it went away and i couldn't get it back.

now i know that they use cookies, but my how could they have a part of my last post? are they tracking and then advertising according to your interests?
has anyone else seen anything like this?

I'm sure it has to do with tracking your activity and posts to determine what ad's to display to you.

Years ago, and I mean almost 10 years ago, when facebook started to take off, I was dating a young man. All of a sudden I started seeing ad's for Art schools, and company's that shared his last name ( He was super in to art those days)

So it was clear to me that somehow the internet was using its black magic to market to me.

I'm sure in the last 10 years their coding and strategies have gotten wider and better.

There are add banners everywhere even on this site on top and side of every page. It drives me nuts when when I'm on my desktop, on the iPad hover adds don't work. I used to donate but that doesn't work either.

yea i realize that, that's one of the reasons i set my browser to delete cookies and flash cookies. haven't had any thing come up since then and that was a long long time ago. had to do it one other time when i changed ISP's, and that stopped then.
just weird that it was there.

That is not the only thing going on a youtube... With a very thinly outline of their policies they are removing advertising from any subject they deem might upset the snowflake crowd.

umm yes they track everything..
Like I sometimes post about how girlie I sound and my girlie taste in music..
but I also talk about liking girls..

So...

My ads are for dresses and tunics and hippie beads, and russian and muslim dating websites LOL

Then someone was blocking me from getting to ATS so I started using a VPN and then I noticed for one even though I was using a US IP all the sudden I was on a new internet and all my ads were like German or Swiss or something.. And they were no longer attached to my interests..

then I turned it back off as ATS problem went away, and now google is so confused it has no idea what's going on..

Now my ads may change based on

THIS VERY POST.



that's nothing... They are already influencing "related" videos to steer people away from "terrorism" and it all starts there, when I said the VPN put me on a different internet I mean youtube google everything was giving me different results than before.. I was on the same internet of course but was I? I could see so much more..

I have to just laugh, because the world is looking exactly like the conspiracies said it would that I was into 15 years ago..

being PC on that doesn't surprise me.
what did was seeing my own words that i didn't post to youtube did.
makes one wonder what else i posted has been seen. don't get me wrong i got nothing to hide but it would be nice to know when your words are out floating about.

this site uses google ads so thats how they get you here..
besides bots crawling through and reading all your posts..
then if you have not logged out of youtube, gmail, facebook, and I'm sure many others those all track you and cross reference track you..

it's pretty messed up.

the ads can change almost instantly so the tracking is not taking a long time to read your posts.. Like it's already backed up as you type it.. at least as soon as you post it.

I think you accidentally saw behind the veil.
but I have seen my own words before...
and they are using newer and newer tricks..

here just watch for about 1 minute from were I have it saved..

here

And now my connection to ATS is goofing off again, anyway it's brookings institute talking about using ads to steer people down fake paths to "Alter their behavior"

and I trained around psychological operations guys..

and now it's in the private sector..

thing is i set my browser to delete all flash and normal cookies except ATS, when it closes. i get a few here and a few ads come up on other sites. i get might some, on a click bait one. but i've never gotten them on youtube, and let alone my own words. i could also see it if i hadn't shut down my computer, but i do that every night unless i get distracted and forget to, that didn't happen last night.

But why would google need cookies to track you?

that's so oldschool.

they already saw what you wrote, it's stored through their servers..

It's in the terms and conditions for youtube gmail yahoo facebook off the top of my head..

i realize google archive everything,but as i go to youtube and use google's search engine and don't get nearly as many ads as people say they get i have to disagree with you. i may see may 5 or 6 ads a week if that many. and if it was old school and didn't work well why would any other sites still use them. and if you look at your cookies you will see a google folder.

im not saying they don't use cookies, but all of your accoutns are linked..
Look if you open ATS while you are still logged into Gmail they are allowed to look at all of it and use it as they please..

I don't understnd why you are arguing if you're the one confused.. It's not onfusing to me how you still have ads with no cookies..



you just gotta be one of those lazy people and I like you so here:

google tracks no cookies

here's how google facebook apple track you now

Last one

We all know "they" track our online activity, but seeing things like this is simply...scary.

these other technologies and methods are only coming into use.. It won't be long now you'll get your ads you've been missing, haha.

I didn't notice it until maybe a year ago.

but in any case..

from my last link


The manufacturers would assign each device a unique number that would be shared with servers and advertisers as the consumer browses the Web. When the device is a smartphone or tablet, other data such as the person’s location could also be shared.

The way the industry approaches cross-device matching today is through sophisticated guesswork. A crop of startups have built complex algorithms that match the location of the personal computer — known through its IP address — and the location of the phone, which advertisers can see when people share their location with apps. If marketers can observe enough devices in the same place at the same time, they can make a reasonable guess that the device belongs to the same person.

While the device identifier is most viable, other alternatives in the white paper include conducting tracking through the operating system, which would then pass the information to third parties. That model favors Google, Apple, and Microsoft, which own the Android, iOS and Windows operating systems. Tracking could also be done at the browser level


is just one aspect of this..

they're not tracking a computer through cookies..

They're trying to track YOU personally. No matter what device or what IP or whatever..
