Targeted advertising F&*ked me

Hey Guys,

 

So I was considering proposing to my girlfriend and I did a bit of a google search for engagement rings.

 

Now, whenever I go to show my girlfriend any youtube video I get targeted advertising about engagement rings. She definitely saw it but didn't say anything. She's not dumb, I'm sure she knows why it would show up.

 

 

I don't normally care about targeted advertising because I never buy any of their stuff but is there any way of stopping these ring adds from coming up?

 

Thanks

I mean, you could say you let somebody else use it for them to search for engagement rings, or that you actually turned off targeted ads in your Google options (actually do that now and show her, if she asks that is). Otherwise, don't initiate convo about the subject unless she does.

Should have used incognito mode. Clear your browser cookies and cache and they should go away, or intensely look for something else completely random like tents (tents work really well for me lol) 

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

As soon as you are logged in in youtube clearing your browser history isn't enough. You need to clear your watched videos list. I had to do that a little over a year ago because a friend used a computer here which has my youtube login. It scrambled up all the recommended stuff until only a clearing of the watched list stuff could get a reset. 

 

The algorythms though are from my view right now worse than they were a few years ago, and the learning on those recommended stuff is bad. 

Main System:

Anghammarad : Asrock Taichi x570, AMD Ryzen 7 5800 @4900 MHz. 32 GB DDR4 3600, some NVME SSDs, Gainward Phoenix RTX 3070TI

 

System 2 "Igluna" AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Pro, Core I5 3570k @4300, 16 GB Ram DDR3 2133, some SSD, and a 2 TB HDD each, Gainward Phantom 760GTX.

System 3 "Inskah" AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Pro, Core I5 3570k @4300, 16 GB Ram DDR3 2133, some SSD, and a 2 TB HDD each, Gainward Phantom 760GTX.

 

On the Road: Acer Aspire 5 Model A515-51G-54FD, Intel Core i5 7200U, 8 GB DDR4 Ram, 120 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, Intel CPU GFX and Nvidia MX 150, Full HD IPS display

 

Media System: Asrock ASRock Z87 Extreme4/TB4, Intel Core i5 4460, 16 GB Ram DDR3 1600 ADATA XPG, 1 275 GB SSD, 4 Seagate Ironwolf 4TB HDD in raid 5, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX (the 560 will be replaced with one of the 760 due to better effeciency)

 

(Abit Fatal1ty FP9 IN SLI, C2Duo E8400, 6 GB Ram DDR2 800, far too less diskspace, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX broken need fixing)

 

Nostalgia: Amiga 1200, Tower Build, CPU/FPU/MMU 68EC020, 68030, 68882 @50 Mhz, 10 MByte ram (2 MB Chip, 8 MB Fast), Fast SCSI II, 2 CDRoms, 2 1 GB SCSI II IBM Harddrives, 512 MB Quantum Lightning HDD, self soldered Sync changer to attach VGA displays, WLAN

The worst thing you could do now is come up with excuses.

Just pretend like nothing.

 

I'm sorry for your loss. Better use Adblock and a private browsing window next time.
