The human arsenal is known for many different things, but more importantly, it is known for improving on a consistent basis. This dynamic, in particular, has allowed us to hit upon some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a unique member of the stated group. The reason why technology’s credentials are so anomalous is largely down to its skill-set, which realized all the possibilities for us that we couldn’t have imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, if we take a slightly closer look, it will become clear how the whole runner was also very much inspired by the way we applied those skills across a real-world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence, and consequentially, kickstarted a tech revolution. This revolution, as we eventually discovered, will go on to scale up our lives from every conceivable direction, but even after achieving such a monumental feat, technology will somehow continue to scale up the picture under one capacity or the other. This has only turned more and more evident on the back of our recent progression, and truth be told, Google’s latest launch does a lot to keep that trend well and truly alive.
Google has officially launched a brand new ad hub, which is designed to give users more control over what kind of ads they are shown and what data is being used to target them. According to certain reports, the new hub will come equipped with options like the ability to increase or decrease the amount of advertising you see on certain brands and topics, to blacklist certain sensitive topics, including alcohol, dating, and weight loss, or to opt out of ad personalization entirely. On the last bit, even if you decide to opt out of ad personalization, you will not be losing access to any of the features that were, up until now, provided only when these settings were enabled. As good-intentioned as it seems, though, the move from Google to give users more control is surely born out of the world’s growing focus on privacy and the wider digital security. In case you haven’t been keeping up, Apple has already made some drastic changes to how it serves those data-driven personalized ads, so for Google to put-together a somewhat similar effort isn’t exactly surprising. Nevertheless, if the deal is just like how it’s being marketed around, then it’s still a major milestone in our journey to create a safer digital experience.
Notably enough, the changes in question will be evident across every device you are signed in to with your Google account, while also covering all those sites and apps that use Google’s advertising tools. Talk about how you can utilize some of these controls, just head to the dedicated website for My Ad Center or you can even reach it via the three-dot menu button on ads shown in Google’s search, Discover, and YouTube services.
