A long German word for "being tracked online"
I did a bit of research online yesterday to find a new digital camera. Then boom -- for the rest of the day, there were ads for digital cameras on every blog and news site I visited. I decided we needed a long German word for this moment of perception. So I tweeted and asked for one, and got some great suggestions! (Cavaet: I speak no German so have no idea what these word-strings actually mean.)
