In a bid to promote ads on smartphones, websites are becoming increasingly incredible. It does not only show ad but veers off the site to another that you did not click on and you have no control over what to view. Perhaps ads should be made short, kind of playable but not a video format which runs smoothly and consumes less data. This flash ad displays shortly and then goes off the screen so we can view what we want.
This is to the news sites especially but also blogs. Are we that broke that we have to sell ads? Like one said, are people ready to pay for news to read online? I think some are and it does/helps promote the site.
