Google has launched a new ad campaign targeting tech companies that provide cloud services for users.
The campaign, called Smart, targets Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Google and Twitter, along with the companies’ own cloud services.
“The internet has always been a powerful platform for free speech and freedom of expression, and as the internet evolves, we can’t help but think about how we protect this legacy of free expression, even as the technology we use evolves,” the Google ad campaign reads.
“This campaign is about making sure we’re using the best technologies available to ensure everyone has the freedom to do their jobs safely and securely.
We’ll use technology to make sure our users have the tools to protect their data.”
The ads are the first time that Google has made a direct push to tech companies.
The ad campaign, which is based on the theme “Protect Your Data”, uses images from the internet, videos and photos to promote the messages.
The ad campaign is the latest move by Google to target the internet giants as it tries to woo users to the new services.
Earlier this year, the search giant said it would invest $2 billion to buy Instagram and YouTube in a deal that would be worth an estimated $200 billion.
