I am curious to know how targeted advertising works on this site.
I am receiving ads from the Liberal Party spruiking this weekends coming Australian Federal Election.
Most ads I am receiving are Australian based, ie, The Ghan Train trip Adelaide to Darwin. I simply do not understand how targeted ads work. Especially as this is a UK site.

someone with more tech knowledge can explain better - but my understanding is your browser knows where you are and picks up from other things you look at outside of Buzz.

so everyone's ads will be different depending on that.

Thank you for that explanation. Not being up with how technology works it has always fascinated me. Targeted Advertisements. So I raise my fist to my Browser.
