As most Facebook users will know, recently Facebook has hit the 1 billion users target. And although this number probably contains scores of users who are:
- Not real.
- Duplicate accounts.
- Pets or soft toys.
Facebook still thought it necessary to launch a brand new advert to mark this occasion. Please note this is only a shortened version of the ad.
Now most of you will agree with me that this advert is, for use of the common phrase, pathetic. I don’t think anybody has ever looked at a chair and though “My oh my, this chair really reminds me of Facebook”. I think I am also right in saying that this applies to aeroplanes, doorbells, bridges and; for some even more bizarre reason, basketball.
Another poor point was about halfway through when the makers of the advert were obviously at a loss to find something else people share. I quote:
“about ideas, and music and other things that people share.”
Facebook has obviously taken a gamble with this advert and, for me, it hasn’t paid off.
