- CONFIRMSHAMING: This is the act of guilting someone into optin-in to something.
- DISGUISED ADS: These are advertisements on webpages that are camouflaged as similar content on that specific site, in order to get people to click on them.
- FORCED CONTINUITY:This happens whenever our free trial to a service ends. Companies sometimes charge our credit cards silently without any warning. Then, they often make it difficult to cancel the automatic renewal.
- FRIEND SPAM:This occurs when a product asks for our emails or social media permissions under the pretense it will be used for a desirable outcome(find friends, show better recommendations, etc). However, it ends up pamming our contacts with messages that claim to be from us.
