Definition of GAFAM
The GAFAM is an acronym used to describe the five multinational technology companies Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft, taking the first letters of all these companies. The GAFAM are sometimes referred to as the Big Five due to them being the five most profilific companies in the world. Although in some sectors some of the five companies may be in direct competition, they offer different products or services overall while presenting some common characteristics that deserve to bring them together under the same acronym: by their size, they are particularly influential on the American and European Internet both economically and politically and socially and are regularly the subject of criticism or prosecution on tax matters, abuses of dominant positions and the non-respect of Internet users' privacy.

Youtube Advertisements Regex
NOTE: This is supposed to prevent these domains to be loaded not only on youtube, but on all over the web and, since I'm trying to completely block google in my home, I don't care if youtube is broken. I'll may work on an efficient regex for this purpose.
curl -sSl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nickspaargaren/pihole-google/master/install.sh | bash
and then, executing it. It should add all of the above regex automatically.
Sites you may want to whitelist
(Be aware that the regex script doesn´t add it to the whitelist list by default)

Can i use it with my other ads/domains blocker program ?
Surely ! if it does indeed support the host or domains type of filters. Import it manually, or click on this link if you are using a web browser extension.
