Facebook Ads are a Waste of Money for Advertisers
Looks like mainstream media is finally catching onto the fact that Facebook advertising doesn’t pay off. The BBC looked into it and discovered that most “likes” are by fake accounts.
Fake Facebook users give advertising a false boost
According to a recent BBC investigation, advertising on Facebook is not worth it, since companies do not receive the return on investment they expect.
The vast majority of users go on the site to socialize with friends and family; the tiny ads on the right-hand side of the Facebook homepage don’t attract nearly as much attention as advertisers would hope. Worse yet, it has been found that a significant proportion of the user profiles who do ”like” company pages turn out to be fake.
By the way, for five bucks spent at Fiverr you can get 100 or more “likes” in minutes by Indians who do this for a living.

While we were testing Facebook ads, we were also trying to get Facebook to let us change our name, because we’re not Limited Pressing anymore. We contacted them on many occasions about this. Finally, we got a call from someone at Facebook. They said they would allow us to change our name. NICE! But only if we agreed to spend $2000 or more in advertising a month. That’s correct. Facebook was holding our name hostage. So we did what any good hardcore kids would do. We cursed that piece of shit out! Damn we were so pissed. We still are. This is why we need to delete this page and move away from Facebook. They’re scumbags and we just don’t have the patience for scumbags.
