Sorry to burst some conspiracy theory bubbles, but yes Facebook actually has 1 billion "REAL" active members using the site each month. And that's taking into consideration double accounts, business accounts and spam accounts. That's 1 billion real people using Facebook on average of once a month.
Yes it sounds un realistic, but it is true.
That statement is very bold and carries a very strong opinion and tone. If it's as accurate as you claim then you must have insider information that the public doesn't have access to? Would you care to disclose it? Otherwise it's just another opinion such as the other ones here including my own and I very seriously doubt it's validity.
Would you like to point out specifically what you see here as a conspiracy theory so whoever you are implicating in your comment can respond accordingly?
But maybe you should first lookup the definition so that you can learn to recognize legitimate debate vs conspiracy theory. If you are referring to my comments in general one doesn't have to stretch their imagination to recognize the validity in what I'm saying -- it can be verified independently outside of my own opinion.
As for me not liking facebook -- it's not a question of not liking liking them (ok except for the one time I referred to MZ as Emperor Nero) it's a matter of not liking their exploitation of individuals and small business people. So in that sense yes I have a moral responsibility to put into writing what is really going on so that if small business people doing research on the effectiveness of facebook advertising come across this forum post they can get some insight from sources other than the hyped up stuff. That will equip them to make an informed decision about facebook advertising and potentially save them some grief. As for young people being exploited they have no idea yet how oftentimes remarks they posted in facebook during times of frustration are going to come back to haunt them many years from now when out looking for work.
Facebook is poison, ummmmmmm, just my humble opinion of course.
