Dark Patterns — Fraudulent Practices in Site Design

Сообщение A440 » Сб май 01, 2021 12:08 am

There is an excellent article in the New York Times from Greg Bensinger about "Dark Patterns" —
the techniques that companies use online to get consumers to sign up for things, keep subscriptions they might otherwise cancel or turn over more personal data. It's basically the three cup monte done in a digital format as a kind of short con.

What I found interesting among their examples was a reference to Ticketmaster (LiveNation), which has engaged in quite a lot of fraudulent practices (www.change.org/p/ticketmaster-put-an-end-to-ticketmaster-s-resale-scam

Now it seems that several state attorney generals have made note of the use of "dark patterns" to flim-flam $ out of the unwary, kind if like the online streaming scammers do buy taking advantage of people's weaknesses:
