  • Is Yahoo Buzz Mainstreaming Porn?

    Yahoo  

    Dec 17 2008

    Is it just me, or has anyone else NOT seen this kind of ad on Yahoo Buzz before?  I have never seen anything ad-related to pornography on Yahoo Buzz ever, and was quite shocked to see such an ad there.  Have I missed something? I was reading a story on bedroom pillows and that ad shows up?  WTF?  I just don’t think that is right IMO - what are your THOUGHTS on it? I don’t want you guys to start calling me Mr. Cleaver, but I would hate if my kids accidentally clicked on the cute looking bunny not knowing what it was.  I think this is a big mistake by Yahoo.  Or what if you were at work, and a boss walked by and saw the ever famous Playboy bunny on your computer screen?  Anyway, like I said – I would love to hear your thoughts on this?

      Mat, maybe it’s just been tracking the places/categories that you visit and is trying to show relevant advertising to you? ;)
