The big question for brands is that - is my as going to be showing against, a porn site or showing IN a porn site or a violence promoting site, et cetera. And some other areas that you might find, uncomfortable that you want your, that your clients might not want their brands to be showing against.


It's a real and true issue. And unfortunately, I don't think there've been enough safety measures put in place. Some of our experts don't think they ever will be. I don't know if you've ever thought about these things when especially if you run paid ads, but there's no time like the present to think about these things.


I hope this is a perfect time for you to think about it and maybe come up with solutions even for your clients.
