Does it tho..? Maybe I'm naive, but I fail to see the invasion of privacy from "looked left" or "made a smile".

Every article which talks about privacy forgets the fact that we haven't had any in a long long time. We traded it for convenience

You looked at x ad longer than 2 seconds, cataloged as relevant / effective, ad revenue criteria met. Ad slightly modified to be slightly more blue next time, eye time 2.3s, more ad revenue. All future ads now with more blue. ad y shows up, 4 seconds. Double the frequency of ad y, more ad revenue. ad y blue-purple, down to 3.8s. Back to more blue for more ad revenue.

What’s the problem? Do you prefer an ad that pleases you or an ad that doesn’t? This is no different from staring at ads on your phone.

If your problem is ads altogether, my question is, do you want everything paywalled instead?
