Eric Zeng, Tadayoshi Kohno, Franziska Roesner. "What Makes a
'Bad' Ad? User Perceptions of Problematic Online Advertising." In
CHI '21: Proceedings of the 2021 CHI Conference on Human Factors
in Computing Systems.
We surveyed over 1000 participants and asked for their opinions on
ads in our dataset - 500 ads scraped from the top sites on the web.
Participants labeled each ad with one or more opinion labels
describing their subjective opinion of the ad, with 10 participants
assigned to each ad. Here, we show the
opinion label distributions for each ad (the percentage of
participants who agreed with each label).
Try clicking on any column label to sort by the column values. Click on the
Ad ID to see the screenshot and participant comments about the ad.
Description of columns
Ad ID: identifier and filename for the screenshot of the ad
Content Labels: Researcher-created labels describing the format and topic of the ad (and any misleading techniques used)
Cluster: Cluster ID generated from the distribution of participants' opinion labels (i.e. ads that the population of people felt similarly about)
Avg. Rating: The average ratings given to the ad by participants, on a 7 point Likert scale
