Social Media

Facebook Ad FAIL

Facebook is feeling like the older brother who still wants to practice his guitar and go on tour with his garage band, except he’s 45 and balding. I’m not sure what this is supposed to mean but go with me here. It’s just been hella obnoxious to me lately, with their changes. And tryna keep up with Google Plus and alla dat.

Anywho, while perusing Tumblr, I came across the ad that someone said appeared on their sidebar.

An ad asking for folks to become social workers. And the picture is of a baby in a lacefront weave.

You know what??? iCan’t. Not today. Not next week. Not on New Year’s. I just can’t.

Why is this poor baby in a long lacefront that belongs on Pocahontas’ head? Why did they think this ad would be more effective with that picture? Is this to prove that social workers are needed because mothers are unfit and wigging up their chilrun? I don’t e’em know.

I don’t e’em have much else to say but NO. To ALL of this.

Would y’all go to this “school?”

    What the ad is really saying is “Please don’t let this happen to another innocent child…become a social worker today.”

    First time commenter, long-time lurker. Your blog keeps me laughing obnoxiously loud and the things you write makes me think of my inner circle of ‘ignatelligent’besties. Now on to the topic at hand…I ain’t go into debt with William D. Ford for folks to be attaching my profession to a lacefront! Jesus be an accredited university with a picture of a professional social worker and NOT one of the social problems we trying to solve. Just Rodney Dangerfieldin’ my life’s work!Just dayum, smh.

    Aside: The problem is, if you’ve posted a pic on Facebook and didn’t set your settings properly, they can sell your pics. The real problem is, you can have YOUR settings on Witness Protection Program mode, but if some one else posted a pic of you, too bad.

    On point: This is why we need social workers. To stop this. Please get to Toddlers in Tiaras ASAP

    I’ve been seeing that pic for the longest while – hi5 days. I’m guessing that the school didn’t put this up and it’s just someone running a prank who had some spare change in his PayPal account. Guess FB needs to start monitoring the ads they are putting out more closely.
