Facebook - how random

(Heidi Meier) #1

I’ve just Liked a post on my business Facebook page, from my personal Facebook page (because I’m genuinely pleased with how the lion turned out…) and immediately Facebook suggested a list of ‘Other Pages Like This’.

What do you think they suggested? Hamza Ali Abbassi - who is a Pakistani filmmaker.

I make embroidered fabric pictures. All I can say is '??"

Has anyone else been compared with seemingly random pages too???!

I just shared a fellow jewellery makers page on my Facebook and it came up with a very random list of “pages like this” including a lot of food and recipes! Maybe facebook could sense my rumbly tummy! :smiley:

There rarely seems to be much sense in the “Pages like this” suggested by Facebook. I ignore that bit - it’s pretty useless!

my facebook personal page is completely spammed with suggestions and adverts it drive me nuts.

Oh yes and so and so friend has liked this post so many are not true as I did a little test and asked my friends and they were all a bit miffed to find that facebook had suggested they’d liked certain products.

Yes I have been suggested with some rather unsavoury pages too reported them but were told they were not breaking facebooks rules because apparently half naked underage girls is acceptable to them!?

Every time I like any of Di at Adien Crafts posts it suggests Thomas the Tank Engine. Not sure if I’ve ever told her that though:-)

I think the FB elves need to go back to marketing school, and brush up on targeting customers effectively. Seems to be a free for all at the moment! Not encouraging for those people considering advertising with them!!
