Discussion on: Privacy is about taking informed decisions

I don't hate targeted ads. Last month I was trying to buy a new phone and a bunch of ads showed me different options I could choose from. The final buying decision came from knowing all those options and lots of research.

I think all businesses need to survive somehow. Want an ads free social media? Pay for it. Wants ads free search engine? Pay for it. Lots of the alternative search engines for example may opt for the no track but then they will serve you untargeted ads. That's worse imo. If I have to see ads, I would rather see the ones that may benefit me
