Do You Notice Facebook Ads?

Confidence in Facebook's growth potential and marketability is dwindling, and now claims that Facebook ads don't work are threatening to shake it even more. According to Forbes, Facebook is jumping on damage control because General Motors dropped its $10 million in Facebook advertising. Not that $10 million is much to Facebook, but the message it sends could be disastrous.

To address the situation, Facebook outlined what a good ad should include: a focal point, brand link, tone, reward, noticeability, and finally, a point. If an ad doesn't have those things, it risks being ignored. Of course, companies like General Motors would argue that it's the platform that needs work, rather than the ads themselves. Do you tend to notice good Facebook ads, or do you ignore them completely?

    Hardly go on to facebook. It was good in the beginning when it was like a meeting place. I enjoyed it. But now it seems to be everyone telling the world about their wonderful children or grand-children. I have both but don't think I need to brag in public. It still serves a purpose but google talk and video is better.

    NO! I delete them. Facebook needs to clean its act up and become more responsible to our children. ex. Limit the number of friends one has under a certain age. Parents must have a facebook account also and must be plugged into their children's account to monitor same, random checks of facefook accounts of children under a certain age for inappropriate photos, comments and use.

    When I listen to say an NFL game, they is a "AD" anouncement after almost every play. I couldn't tell what one AD was about.

    I generally don't mind Facebook and Google ads, but sometimes they show sexually provocative things which my kids might see. That, I mind a lot.

    I notice them... the question is do I click on them and the answer to that would be NO!!!
    I don't get on FB to be marketed to, FB is for socializing.

    Adblock Plus, Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus and Ghostery.

    What Adblock Plus and Ghostery do not filter I can easily manually hide elements on a page that will be remembered via the Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus.
    It is a rare day that I see an ad anywhere.

    NO in fact I ignore them as I do the ads on TV, which has been increasing the amount of time on advertising. I end up turning it all off as I forget what I was watching as the program is chopped up for minutes at a time and the channel surfing begins. Thank God for PBS!
