Ubergizmo: Japanese Police Use Targeted YouTube Ads To Warn Would-Be Voyeurs

Ubergizmo: Japanese Police Use Targeted YouTube Ads To Warn Would-Be Voyeurs. “According to the local police, it seems that illegal voyeur recordings have been a growing problem and arrests are up 25% from last year. In a bid to deter would-be voyeurs, the police have taken out targeted ads on YouTube to warn that voyeurism is a crime. So since these are targeted ads, it appears that the police are targeting users who are male and over the age of 18 and who might have search terms like ‘peeping’ and ‘small camera’ in their histories, which might suggest that they are interested in either watching these voyeuristic videos or looking to take part in them.”
