In real life there's not much I can (safely) do about billboards, signs, and so forth.

On the web the real answer is to stay on sites and services that are ad-free. That just severely limits my options - but most of the things with ads really aren't worth the effort anyway.

....now I just need to convince all of my friends and family to get on open source social networks. How hard can that be? (Ha!)

No. I figure using a website is an explicit transaction. They provide something I want, and I either pay by buying a subscription or else by viewing ads. If the site has lots of ads, I don't want to support them but the correct thing to do is just leave the site.
