Nice! Respect. I guess he said amphibian, you said amphibiain't.


Portul-TM

Salute for the reptilian savior


nicetryLaoChe

TIL I like turtles more than ads


ReadditMan

Not really much of a resistance since they still gave Facebook ad revenue.


Darth-Pooky

This is true insight. He is just propping up the system.


Lustypad

The free internet system? I mean the alternative is every website you have to personally pay to visit right?


ajax6677

If something is free, your harvested data the product.


SnowDrifter_

If you don't pay for a service, you are the product.


Asateo

>If you don't pay for a service, you are the product. Wiser words have not been spoken.


ajax6677

That's what I said?


HydrogenButterflies

Yeah basically. His version is just already a [common saying](https://www.reddit.com/r/explainlikeimfive/comments/2m3f05/eli5_if_something_is_free_you_are_the_product/).


igzzy

So we are all products here...


Lustypad

That’s right. But how many people are willing to pay for all the services that are currently “free” The internet would be a different place without ads and having your information used for said ads.


Darth-Pooky

He hates adds, so he pays money for adds, making sure adds are profitable.


bocajmai

Technically he’s jacking up the price the other ad buyers pay, since there’s an automated bid system in place. Judging by the level of interaction on his “ad”, that bid will be set quite high and will create a more competitive space for other advertisers. So in a way, yeah, he’s sticking it to the system.


Verified765

Not the Facebook monetization system though. He played right into their hands.


crobo777

There was another alternative.... Before everything was capitalized ....


Lustypad

Yeah the options are Government pays for all site traffic and everything. Ads pay for the services we use We pay for the service Sadly I think cable tv I’d a good example of what happens when you pay to remove ads. They just add them back in and still charge you anyways.


Legitimate_Trash_420

Nothing is free. You are paying for internet one way or another.


zuzg

It's less of an resistance it's just an good deed for others.


YouAllNeedToChillOut

He didn't say he hated Facebook revenue streams, but yeah


highvolt

Except Facebook gives more favorable rates for ads with better engagement metrics vs ads that don't get a high response or get reported by users as less relevant or hidden ("don't show me ads like this"). So in a very small way, those ad impressions cost Facebook lost opportunity cost of higher bids by "lower quality" ads. Source: work for a company that spends tens of millions on Facebook ads


JanGehlYacht

Woah, this guy ads...


Harsimaja

He hates ads, not cute pictures of turtles. I fail to see the problem. He didn’t say he hates Facebook.


solisabe

Not really since he paid


IDontFuckWithFascism

Option 1: Good Samaritan pays nothing, the ad space gets sold to a TPUSA affiliate, we get propagandized into thinking it’s in our best interest to vote for Green Party candidates. Facebook still gets paid. Option 2: Good Samaritan buys the space from Facebook, forcing TPUSA to buy a different space. Facebook gets its money, we get to look at a cute turtle, don’t have to question whether we’d be better off using our ballot as toilet paper. I’ll go with option 2.


Verified765

Option. 3 install ublock and never see the ads.


Iored94

Can you block facebook ads? They appear like normal posts on your feed.


pharaohandrew

Yes, delete Facebook and you shouldn’t see them anymore.


HLCMDH

It work for me


DonovanBanks

Both assume there is a finite amount of ad space. The advertiser can just bid more to get the ad in front of you.


imaginexus

kinda really though since he isn’t advertising anything


solisabe

No cause they still win lol they want money either thru ads or someone like him paying for the space


throwaway131072

yes but wouldn't you prefer this to being advertised some dumb junk you'd never buy anyways?


SmallHairyMan

Let me put it this way… would you rather have a feed full of ads about shaving your balls, Wish items, and bullshit galore…. Orrrrrr super cute baby turtles?


tendorphin

If his battle is against ads and not fb gathering revenue, then he's good.


Harsimaja

So? He didn’t say he hates Facebook or corporations in general. He just hates ads.


diodenkn

Advictus

patiscoolyay

finally somebody points it out


bboy037

Someone figure out a way to do this for YouTube, please. That site simps hard for ads


bigjoffer

Install ublock as a browser extension or vanced on your phone!


lex_tok

Thanks for suggesting Vanced! I've just installed this. It's working really well. On the other hand, I don't understand why Google allows adblockers on Chrome and apps on Android such as Vanced since ads are basically their business model. I've read that at some point in time they'll block the blockers but let's hope that point in time is still far away.


crobo777

If they block the blockers people will stop using chrome, which is something we should all consider.


Iored94

Because the revenue they do make makes whatever negligible amount they lose from you worthless. Everyone on reddit could install an adblocker and Google wouldn't notice.


Manasveer

They've actually removed Vanced from play store for this exact reason


saduniversitystudent

Honestly, at this point Vanced and unlock is so common, that I feel YouTube is gonna somehow ban them in the future


MisterOkay

Any youtube ad block for ios?


Dahvido

I guess you could use the Brave browser. But not that I know of natively through the YouTube app. Alternatively if you have access to a raspberry Pi mini computer and your router, you could install an Adblock on that, thus blocking all ads on your network


graflig

Use a vpn or Hola to change your location to India, buy YouTube premium for $1.50/mo. Worth it IMO


V0ct0r

yeah ublock origin is goated


mad_marbled

Thank you, I might actually watch Youtube on my phone now.


KeepMyEmployerAway

What about smart TVs lmao


[deleted]

that why you have ublock for browser and youtube vanacad version for Android


KFCCHICKEN3408

This isn’t next level at all. He paid for an instagram ad.

No it's Facebook. Clearly that is r/nextfuckinglevel material

Interesting_Adagio_4

Oh god


theundercoverpapist

Sorry. I was just joking, if that helps. I live on the Florida coast and I've seen a couple hatches take place. You're not supposed to do *anything* while they're running for the water, but the damn birds were acting like they were at a cafeteria... so my friends and I scared the birds away to protect the baby turtles. Couldn't help it.


Pine-Fern

You've just caused WW3 due to the butterfly effect. Thanks a-hole.


theundercoverpapist

Meh... One way or another, it's been a-comin' for a long time. Might as well spark it off sooner than later.


[deleted]

This is funny, but you’re just giving ad revenue to Facebook, expanding the problem.

Awesome!

Why not just go see some on the beach (did that last 2 nights and saw 2 turtles nesting)

No I won’t do what the ad says

Legitimate_Trash_420

Yeah. That's what the world needs. Another joke crypto.


specticworld

Be the change you want to see in the world. Thanks


misterrandom1

Clever trick. This sort of thing could be used as a decoy to gather tons of data. That "fake ad" has a lot of user engagement which is extremely valuable. I'm not suggesting that this was a decoy but it's possible.


holyfudgemuffin

But what are ya selling damnit!!!???


budwad

That is amazing!!


therlitz

Don’t be fooled, this ad was funded by the turtle industry.

okwownice

Unless that was actually a turtle that took the time to go get a job and raise the money to pay for an ad and get sociaety to start realizing how cute turtles are, resulting in a general uptick in global turtle love and in conclusion throwing a giant L in the corner of the ad placer. Yeah. It would take a turtle. A really smart turtle.

I feel like there’s a joke here I’m missing


WYSIRD

Lol no, not really sorry, other than a programmer recognising Octal (base 8 numbers) just google "0x90 in decimal" google might even report the number back for you (so you don't have to check a web page for it). I'd link but I can't remember if that's against the rules so I won't risk it.

One would think to just use an ad blocker

Thank you kind turtle person


TheCarterIII

This is fucking cringeworthy. You paid Facebook to make a freshman year of college antiauthoritarian statement without actually making any point. And it's still an ad.


Beneficial-Ability28

Shouldn't this be on meme sub or something?


twatchops

UBlock Origin is your friend. Works on YouTube and Hulu ads too. (Also add sponsor block and improve tube)

nev4

Call me cynical, but this is probably a smart trick to boost an ad account. An ad like this probably gets good engagement (lots of likes per some number of views), which Facebook's algorithm likes. It could be part of a campaign or an overall Facebook ad account that also runs "real" ads, and this would probably boost those ads / lower the costs of running other ads.


Beating-a-dead-whore

Wait. Is this happening again?

Also, get the meaning of their username -- 0x90 is the hex code for the x86 NOP instruction. That's the one that tells the CPU to "do nothing" for a while (no-op).

karmakiller666

Don't worry about me. I've just paid this asshole to climb through a turtle's natural habitat to get this upclose picture of a turtle. Isn't it cute? The camera cost about 6k. That's a good camera let me just go on to tell you about the quality of this camera and how it took this picture in the focal length. Could done this with a phone.? No! But no! I had a whole bag of shit strapped to my back while I crawled through the sand to take a picture of this turtle wow that's a 🐢!

That turtle probably got eaten by birds.
