Today I came across this really interesting tweet on my Twitter timeline today:
Before Limited Run takes down their Facebook profile, I’ve attached a screenshot of their post below:
Reading this post today reminded me on a news article I read on “virtual likes” and how advertising through Facebook doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be any better off. It all comes down to the level of engagement user’s have with a profile page. If users are just liking the page and not interacting with your posts or general content, those likes are worth nothing. Some companies are wising up to the effectiveness of Facebook’s advertising strategy.
Limited Run isn’t the first to ditch Facebook ad’s, General Motor’s pulled away from Facebook ad’s earlier this year due to the ad’s Facebook produce do not have the visual impact needed to justify the cost.
I think certain aspects of Facebook is a joke filled mostly of people looking for attention, not an effective marketing tool.
Before you go...
If you've found this post helpful, you can buy me a coffee. It's certainly not necessary but much appreciated!
