Say What?

Sunday, May 23, 2010
Plenty of people have complained about the privacy issues with facebook and its advertisers, I am just going to complain about the advertisers themselves.
Celebrate Moms by "liking" a cleaning supply? Ugh.

And then there's this. I don't understand this at all. If Clorox thinks it's important to help kids, why make people "like" it on Mother's day in order to make the donation? This is a general gripe and confusion about corporate giving; do consumers like it more when they feel involved? Does it sell more products? Does it sell more than just printing "Clorox supports kids" on the package?

How about not only marketing it to women? Does that help?

Here ends today's rant.
