Formula contamination advertising

Post by Penguin » Wed Aug 07, 2013 5:16 pm

I've seen on my facebook an ad for the formula company 'care line' which was affected by the contaminated whey. It's been on my FB pretty much constantly, so they must be funneling money into to promo.

When I first saw it a few days ago the 'care line' had 62 likers. I saw it a day or two after that, and it was up to eighty something. I just saw then it was up to 469 likers!

That's a lot of people who might have signed up for contamination updates, who will keep getting ads now after the scare is over.

You can target FB ads to only show up to people who HAVEN'T liked you already - perhaos that's how it's set up. So you have 'liked' the 'care line'?
