what is happening???
I was browsing the discussion board, then I got on a discussion, then a ad starts PLAYING. like a video on the side of the discussion. then b4 it started discussion started scrolling down for me, which is nice, but a little creepy.
has this happened to anybody else or just me?
I agree. Using adblocker prevents Duolingo getting revenue from them... Kind of a crap thing to do when someone is using the lessons for free, unless the ads are in some way detrimental to them. I have not used AdBlocker for Duolingo because the ads have not caused me any problems.
I know for sure that clicking an ad generates funding for Duolingo. So, some people are clicking every ad in order to help. I think views do as well. I wouldn't be surprised if clicks generate more though.
Edit: I adjusted pronouns because it looked personally targeted using "you" as a general reference. Wasn't my intention. :)
