I understand the need for ad revenues, why can't they just offer an ad preferences category check box form, instead of all these creepy profiles and tracking cookies. It could be built into your browser instead of cookies.

You could have a list of personal interests, pick at least 10 items, and see only relevant ads. Simple.

They don't make the majority of their money on ad revenues. It is the data mining. Information is power, Google and Facebook have all the power in information. And they are the gatekeepers. This information can easily take down companies and get people elected. It is a huge problem. Ad revenues are the honest way to go. That is not what they want. It really is not about money. Why do you think they didn't take the "simple" way.

I'm just worried the pendulum is going to swing so far, that the free web sites without logins and profiles and user confirmations... are going to disappear. I refuse to use java script and about 10% of sites won't load now, or they claim I'm using an ad blocker. It is going to kill the free internet, mark my words... -joeschmo 4-18-2018

Well that's why this is so bad to have all these huge companies.

Software from a company called Alphonso can be used to listen in to the environment around a user, to work out what they’re watching.

Hundreds of smartphone apps are monitoring users through their microphones

CG, you may want to read this whole article. Yes it will actually be easier for huge companies like FB and Google to comply, small websites don't have an army of lawyers and programmers. This mostly affects EU now, but the same could happen here. What could happen is every web site could require a login and registered stored consent form before viewing any content. That would suck.

Quote:
Europe's new privacy laws are going to make the web virtually unsurfable in the EU.
GDPR and the ePrivacy law will require tech companies to get consent from any user for any information they gather on you and for every cookie they drop, each time they use them.
It will turn the web into an endless mass of click-to-consent forms.
Beneficiaries are likely to be US tech giants Apple, Google, Facebook and Amazon.
Losses will come at the expense of European companies like Criteo, WPP, and the German publisher Axel Springer.

I saw that. But that is not the web doing this it is the people that are trying to regulate it. It shouldn't be regulated in the first place just keep to anti trust laws. Break up the monopolies.

Well that is a little off-topic, but it sounds like you are talking about H.R.1865 - Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017

Looks like both parties supported it overwhelmingly. you dillweed.

Passed House 388-25
Passed Senate 97-2
Signed by Trumpy
