Annoying Facebook ads

annoying_facebook_adsFacebook gets more annoying. Today I note the adverts presented for my eager consumption and click through.

I am not interested in finding attractive women for men over fifty, especially when in the photo they look as if they are the same age as my daughter.

Moreover I am happy enough with my teeth and I already have a driving instructor lined up for kid 3 when he turns 17 (same one as successfully did kids 1 & 2).

If anyone is interested in crowdsourcing a spec for an alternative social media platform that can replace Facebook without the privacy concerns of Facebook stay in touch.

Also I reckon for a learner driver to only cost £2 a day extra it would have to be a 100cc car and the learner would have to be in their fifties -which considering the target demographic for the other ads is probably not far off being right.

  1. Merely having lots of users is not an indicator of value. These American websites are hyped and overvalued by those that being them public. The original investors have their out now and the sheep masses that use them are becoming bored. The fact that you get shown cheap tacky adverts just reinforces the quality of their audience.

    I will review that suggestion. You have to understand the context. The fact is that ad revenues are linked to visitors to a website. The more visitors you have, even if they come from zombie like sites such as facebook the more money you make. We all have our price. 🙂
