How do you feel about the new ad space on Skype?
Microsoft has started offering "conversation ads" based on location, age and gender that pop up beside the image of the person with whom you are skyping. According to Microsoft, these "conversation ads" will generate additional topics of conversation and generate interactivity between users. Left unsaid by Microsoft, "...and make us money." I get that nothing in life is free, but I don't really want to stare at a ad on 1/2 the screen when I'm talking to my wife or kids while they do the same. I'm thinking of switching to a different service, but I don't know, maybe I'm overreacting. What do you think, are big ads going to dissuade you from using skype, or is it time to accept that it is part of the deal?
