This is a respectable proposal, but as someone who has always been against seeing ads and the billboard that the internet has become. It doesn't sit right with me and I will explain why, in order to do this it would involve hitting users with cookies, trackers, pings, etc, these are all things I go to great lengths to avoid. How we will open Hive up like this to marketing and protect users' privacy?
What are the advertisers getting from users because it has to be about more than just clicks today it is all about the information grab. How do we make sure that the data that we are giving to these advertisers is worth the funds we are receiving to help Hive grow.
