The Economy of the Internet

How does technology affect society and individuals?

Ever see those annoying adds on Facebook?

The business model for almost everything on the World Wide Web can be summed up in one word: advertising. Websites generate money by attracting visitors, and then selling the personal data they gather from these visitors to their sites.


Some websites, like Adblock, actually bloack ads so then you won't see those annoying adds on every webite you go too!
