2 KNUST students design advertising platform
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that two students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have outdoored an online platform to assist advertisers and users with their products and services.
Richard Adjetey and Philip Allotey, both computer science students, said the platform, known as myAdmo, was carefully designed with the needs of the user in mind.
The online platform helps users to disable ads they don't want to see but also gives them points for the ones they view, which eventually could be used to buy a product.
