Thank you to SP tech support for their prompt response to my questions about my “hijacked” nutrition tracker (details in yesterday’s blog).
It seems that the Green Giant ad is in such close proximity to the drop down menu (bfast,lunch,dinner) in the tracker that I must have inadvertently clicked on it or at least (in my opinion) let the cursor hover long enough that it was interpreted as a click.
The ad isn’t there this morning. Yea!
I really don’t mind the ads that just sit there passively and let me read or not read them as I see fit. I want this site to remain free.
Yet I wonder about the mindset of the creator of the ad campaign. Did they actually think that this would encourage me to buy their product? While I am definitely aware of it now, I can’t help thinking of it with annoyance.
Oh well, I will consider this just one more reality of modern life.
Read nutrition labels carefully. Guard your identity from theft. Don’t walk down dark alleys. Be aware of your surroundings and be very vigilant about where your cursor is.
Thanks to all who offered comments and suggestions.
