Up to this point, I’d been fairly happy with the advertising on Facebook, it had largely been from companies or products that were either relevant or was that unobtrusive that I didn’t care.
Well I’ve just seen Facebook take a turn for the worse. Check out the screen capture below, particularly the red and white section on the lower-left corner. You’ll see the terrible (was even flashing) ‘You’ve Won’ type-ad that we all hate. They’re useless, irrelevant and more than likely lead to scams.
This is a major disappointment to see Facebook allowing this type of advertising on their site. Let’s hope this is not a trend towards more ads of this kind, as it may quickly turn into a My Space nightmare.
