Hi there, can we talk to you about your Adblock?
Hypable isn’t a large, financially-backed news organization. We’re an independent outlet and wish to remain like that — it’s what’s best for the site. The way we stay alive is solely down to the ads we run. We use ad revenue to pay our hard working writers.
If you run Adblock, we can’t pay our writers as much as they deserve. How about we make a deal?
If you whitelist Hypable now, we’ll reduce the number of ads you see straight away.Yes, I want to help
Great! If you whitelist Hypable with your adblock, we'll immediately disable the volume of ads you see. Also, we'll block obtrusive ones too.Done
