Facebook Ads & Get Rich Schemes
Maybe my Facebook profile has been tagged as "poor loser" but 75% of the ads I see on Facebook are get rich schemes. I visit Facebook about once a month and last week I was on there quite a bit as we got an app and a fan page done for a project. I was amazed at the low quality ads being shown. Some of these looked illegal. Check the fake ID one with Homer.
They are not as bad as the Mypsace ads of 2006 (when it was in it's prime) but they are just as sad.
I found it interesting that if you thumbs up a banner its a one click process. If you thumbs down it asks for a reason. In that drop down I could not find the option "because it's shit". If you click other it wants a proper reason. I can't be bothered filling this out for every crap ad I see.
The other amazing thing is seeing "singles" ads for a profile that is flagged as "in a relationship". I thought Facebook would not allow this as it seems to go against relevant ads.
Is this the same for all countries? Maybe the Australia sales team is snowed under but the quality of the ads makes you think otherwise about advertising with them. Would you want your brand or service sandwiched between two scam ads?
