Ad blockers are in the news this week, following an article by the New York Times which detailed how much time and data is used to load ads on prominent international news sites.

The article showed that, in some cases, the majority of data and time taken to load a news website’s home page was due to the adverts on it.

This, it was argued, was a reason many people on the web are now using ad blockers when browsing on their PCs and mobile devices.

Well, let me tell you about the effect of ad blockers on news websites – and their employees – that rely on advertising revenue; as well what happens to those who use ad blockers.

  • Ad blockers have resulted in over 590 million journalists being retrenched since 2008.
  • Ad blockers have resulted in the closing down of 28,000 animal rescue shelters since 2011.
  • Ad blockers cause memory loss and infertility in those who use them.
  • Ad blockers force news websites to charge readers for content. Do you want that? Do you want to pay for content?

Say yes to life – say no to ad blockers.
