1. The nature of promotion in marketing changes from interruption to permission, the approval of viewers without an editorial intermediary such as the mass media. Promotions in the era of mass media are interruptive or interrupting. Advertising can be done by interrupting viewers while watching an event. For example on a television program, Dangdut Academy, there are various advertisements inserted into the event. The level of exposure to the advertisement to the viewers was very large, even though the viewers had a remote control, because many viewers did not want to risk losing an event because they moved television channels. Besides, on other television channels, there is also a possibility that there are advertisements.
In internet interactive media, viewers have very many choices compared to when using mass media. Viewers can choose the theme they want on the search engine, then read see and listen to a presentation, both in the form of text, sound, image, and combination.
If the ad interrupts in interactive media, viewers will fight by ignoring it or marking it as spam. There is a tendency, online platforms such as search engines, e-mail, and social media provide facilities to deal with spam. So that bombarding viewers with advertising messages as is often done in the mass media, is no longer valid or at least the effectiveness decreases in internet media.

Artificial intelligence’s way of working to recognize one’s interest is as follows. Internet users can track their profile, not only from what he wrote on the form, but also what he did. Google not only knows someone’s profile from the form he wrote in the e-mail (name, address, telephone number), but also records what someone writes on the search engine, what web is widely read, how long to read a particular web, or a particular movie broadcast . The track record on the search engines is analyzed by an artificial intelligence engine to identify their interests and what advertisements and content are appropriate for them. Marketing character changes from interruption to data-based marketing and is increasingly personal.
Facebook also records not only data that viewers write on forms, but also records what status is written, photos, videos shared, and what their reactions are to the status of others. Artificial intelligence Facebook is able to detect even photos they upload and make it as a signal of their interest. Suppose there are people who have never written cats on their status, but he uploaded photos of cats, Facebook technology is able to identify photos of the cat and be used as a signal to recognize interest. Not only photos, technology is now able to recognize videos uploaded by someone, and make it a signal to recognize their interests.
