Ganz Blocks Certain Advertisements Based on Player Age
For months now we have been hearing complaints from players about the advertisements showing up in Webkinz World. There was a concern that many of the ads were "too old" for the children visiting the site. As of today, we now know that Ganz was listening to these posts.
Starting this morning, many players noticed that some of the advertisements were replaced with a note showing the player's age. Here you can see a picture from an account owned by a grandchild of one of the staff members. It appears that Ganz has ranked the third party advertisements by whether or not the are appropriate for certain age groups, and any ads that are ranked above the player's age are being blocked.
