## Why do we see advertising on social networks?
You often come across **"sponsored"** publications when you connect to your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Pinterest accounts? Sometimes you see ads between your friends' posts, often related to a product or a theme that you've viewed a few minutes before? It's not a coincidence but a **marketing technique**! This is called **advertising tracking**.
### How does targeted advertising work?
Advertising tracking (or **retargeting**) allows certain websites to analyze the content you watch on the web to offer you similar ads that might be of interest to you. Their goal, to spark your interest to encourage you to click and often... to buy. That's why, if you do a search on your Internet browser to buy a cookbook, for example, you will have a few minutes later, many **pop-up windows** and ads related to cooking that appear on your Facebook news feed or on your Twitter account with the mention "sponsored".
These sites use **cookies** to keep track of our activities on the Internet and offer us new advertising content every day that we may not necessarily want to see. Luckily, there are **tips to remove advertising on social networks**!
Our **advertising blocker** [Shelblock](/en) aims precisely at **preventing untimely advertising** on the Internet but also at protecting your privacy.
