Collect which users are using ad blockers

I'm taking this course and absolutely love it. I saw the suggestion about collection which users are using ad blockers or something regarding ads on my site www.swedishfreak.com.

 

How exactly would we know who is using adblockers? What is the data we need for that? I assume the dimension scope would be user, correct?

A number of articles with various means of tracking adblocker usage can be found via google search

(in no particular order)
