Curious

Facebook Sponsored Posts Results are SOOOO Low

Facebook does not report actual views, just a relative percentage of paid versus regular views because the actual views are SO low, it’s¬†embarrassing.

This also applies to big huge brands like @burberry too. Just because they have 14 million fans doesn’t mean all of them will see a particular post. In fact, if you consider the number of DAILY active users who actually go on Facebook, and then the percent of those who actually go on Burberry’s page and then the percent of those who actually caught a glimpse of a particular post, you can understand these are truly small numbers.
But, good for Facebook, they booked $7 of Promoted Post revenue from my credit card for whatever little actual number of views they actually sent to my post.
BUYER BEWARE

NOW THIS IS CERTAINLY CURIOUS.  The result of the sponsored post is identical to the sponsored post screen shot from a prior sponsored post. Hmmmm.
