Thought for the day: Amazon Ads

Amazon used to be good at showing me things I might want to buy, based on what I’d bought and what other people who’d bought what I bought had also bought.

Now they’re more concerned with showing me things that advertisers want me to buy, so they can make a few more bucks selling ads.

Yesterday I didn’t see any also boughts at all on the book pages I looked at.

And it’s not just books. When I do a search for anything now, I have to invest time and mental energy in filtering out the damn ‘sponsored’ results.

Just another reason why I buy less and less there.

Jumped. The. Shark.
