Ads missing the mark?
Inspired by Karlin’s piece in yesterday’s paper on Facebook ads, I’ve had a look to see what the social networking site throws up for me.
Attempt number one: Not too insulting. MBA programme for my former college, an ad for photographers (I’m ignoring the second half of that ad) and a Lucozade ad urging me to “spark my summer into life”.
Attempt number two: Less flattering. Aside from the ad for a jewellery website, it also gave me an ad for a bar to celebrate my 30th birthday (sob) and home laser hair removal. Hmm.
Attempt number three: Contradictory. Right below the ad for a home fat reduction system (!!) is an ad for photography in Hawaii, complete with a girl in a bikini. The GAA ad just puzzles me.
So according to Facebook, I’m a fat, almost-30-year-old with hair issues. Who should be drinking copious amounts of Jaegermeister, apparently. An ad for wrinkle-busters would top it off nicely.
A crisis of confidence would beckon if I actually cared.
So what does Facebook say about you?
