I told you I’d be making it a point to keep up with this show again. Well, here’s another episode. This one is a bit of an archive one. I actually recorded it a year and a half ago before the podcast went dormant. I just never got around to editing it and making it fit for sharing with you. Now I have, so here you go!
The gist of the episode revolves around online advertising, otherwise known as paid traffic. A lot of creatives, both in the open source community and outside of it, are interested in getting their work in front of an audience that would appreciate it. Advertising online, particularly on social media (specifically Facebook), seems like it might be the best avenue for getting that kind of proper exposure. However, as someone with a high interest in privacy, security, and non-douchy ethics, I have a few misgivings about how some parts of online advertising are handled. That’s the kind of stuff I’m talking about in this episode.
There’s a question in there for you, too. Even though the recording is over a year and a half old, I’m still curious about this topic and interested in your thoughts on the matter. So please do share.
