This isn't going to be helping matters either, the story is spreading

Is Facebook’s Ad Model a Scam?

http://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2012/07/i...-scam.html

Quote:...I’ve snapshotted this page in case it disappears, but this is on Facebook now, from Limited Run:

Hey everyone, we’re going to be deleting our Facebook page in the next couple of weeks, but we wanted to explain why before we do. A couple months ago, when we were preparing to launch the new Limited Run, we started to experiment with Facebook ads. Unfortunately, while testing their ad system, we noticed some very strange things. Facebook was charging us for clicks, yet we could only verify about 20% of them actually showing up on our site. At first, we thought it was our analytics service. We tried signing up for a handful of other big name companies, and still, we couldn’t verify more than 15-20% of clicks. So we did what any good developers would do. We built our own analytic software. Here’s what we found: on about 80% of the clicks Facebook was charging us for, JavaScript wasn’t on. And if the person clicking the ad doesn’t have JavaScript, it’s very difficult for an analytics service to verify the click. What’s important here is that in all of our years of experience, only about 1-2% of people coming to us have JavaScript disabled, not 80% like these clicks coming from Facebook. So we did what any good developers would do. We built a page logger. Any time a page was loaded, we’d keep track of it. You know what we found? The 80% of clicks we were paying for were from bots. That’s correct. Bots were loading pages and driving up our advertising costs. So we tried contacting Facebook about this. Unfortunately, they wouldn’t reply. Do we know who the bots belong too? No. Are we accusing Facebook of using bots to drive up advertising revenue. No. Is it strange? Yes. But let’s move on, because who the bots belong to isn’t provable.

While we were testing Facebook ads, we were also trying to get Facebook to let us change our name, because we’re not Limited Pressing anymore. We contacted them on many occasions about this. Finally, we got a call from someone at Facebook. They said they would allow us to change our name. NICE! But only if we agreed to spend $2000 or more in advertising a month. That’s correct. Facebook was holding our name hostage. So we did what any good hardcore kids would do. We cursed that piece of shït out! Damn we were so pissed. We still are. This is why we need to delete this page and move away from Facebook. They’re scumbags and we just don’t have the patience for scumbags.

Thanks to everyone who has supported this page and liked our posts. We really appreciate it. If you’d like to follow us on Twitter, where we don’t get shaken down, you can do so here: http://twitter.com/limitedrun

Needless to say, this finding should prompt similar investigations by bigger players.

Even before the IPO, GM said ads on the site weren't worth it.

The FB IPO was a fleecing by the elite of the sheeple. Many of the elite were able to buy in early before the IPO at a huge inside price. They sold high.

At the IPO they had insider "insiders" that made the real cash. But given who created the site it will stay, no matter the stock price. For Gov data mining its priceless.

That bot story was interesting. They do have to generate some sort of income so it's likely their game plan. Hopefully other companies will be as thorough in their investigations. I doubt it though.

It could bring fb down. All their revenue was advertising. They'll have to charge user fees or go bk. coffeetime.gif
