We Will Never Have Autoplay Video Advertisements on Tasty Thailand

Facebook is another website that is implementing auto-play video ads next month. Needless to say, we closed our Facebook account and we recommend you do the same if you find them as intrusive as we do.


Can I just say I hate autoplay video advertisements. I hate them with a passion. Not only do they suddenly blare out into the quietness of your living room when you click on a website that uses them, they’re also obnoxious, unnecessary and usually selling something I have no interest in buying.

On top of that, if I click on a website about Thailand or anything else that has autoplay video advertisements, I immediately click back out again. That means the website hosting them loses several page views from me and, thus, income, as I usually read at least three or four pages on every site I visit, often more, and sometimes even click on their ads.

Unfortunately, sites like Facebook are even now implementing autoplay video advertisements to boost their advertising revenue. Result? We have just deactivated and deleted our Facebook page.

Sorry Zuckerberg, you’re a greedy ultra-rich scumbag already. We don’t plan on helping you make even more money from annoying autoplay video advertisements forced on our viewers.

That’s why I’m also here to promise you, our loyal readers, that on Tasty Thailand we will never knowingly host autoplay video ads as we don’t believe in annoying our readers that way.

If we do discover Google Adsense, or any other ad network we use, is suddenly providing autoplay video ads to Tasty Thailand viewers we will immediately dismantle that part of their service so you’re not stuck having to listen to them.

Autoplay video ads have no place on the internet as they’re simply too intrusive. That’s why we just wanted to let you know they’re not a form of advertising we will ever knowingly use or endorse. We promise.
