once upon a time we turned away

I was listening to a song on YouTube and ads popped up. I clicked one away and another slid in from the left until I placed my curser on it and it was gone.

Every part of that sequence, and how long it took for me to click the first ad and then head over to the other one was watched and recorded by Google’s YouTUBE.

It refines a database that informs an algorithym to craft guiding online experiences for us, including the ads.
