Live smarter with news you can use and info on social media trends.

Have you looked up plane tickets to Bangalore or New York or Phuket, and bam, you get bombarded with pop-up ads for sunscreen, swimsuits, and affordable oceanside hotels? Or better yet, you talked about that new lotion with your friends and immediately got an exclusive discount for it online? How is it even possible and if there’s a way to stop it?
