    threw $25 for 2 days @ it (12,50/day)

    targeting 25-55 year old males , who have liked right-wing, republican, conservative, trump posts

    you can see the political post prompt where it says “paid for”

    in order to post politically charged ads i had to jump through many hoops including a higher level of idenity confirmation

    with election time coming near i plan to use this as leverage to push traffic to my site

    will report back with results

    I do applaud the ad in that it targets people who think they support the entire Constitution. Republicans disregard the Consitution as much as the left, only in different ways. Search and seizure violations, eminent domain, religious liberty (conservatives support blue laws), free of speech (flag burning, for instance), 14th amendment (Trump suggesting stripping away citizenship from those who burn the flag), freedom of the press (Trump suggesting taking away press credentials of those critical of him), due process clause (Trump saying he'd take guns from the mentally ill first, then apply due process second).

    Vote for the Constitution, vote Libertarian.

    a vote for a libertarian is a vote for a democrat because they don't stand a chance of winning and you are just taking a vote away from a republican which is the lesser of two evils

    Talking politics, religion or sexuality on TAZ is a fools errand I won't participate in.

    However, I always appreciate you sharing your results and data fixerfixer. Few others offer the hard #s, and it's very interesting to see.

    Since I'm not a Facebook person, what are you looking to get from these ads? Seems like 2 link clicks is very low but maybe that is not what you are looking for.

    What is the endgame? Where, when, and how will it benefit you?

    over 7,000 people seen it for $24

    compare that to advertising on lets say TAZ

    would i get 7,000 people who are potential members to view my message for less than $25 ?

    i could pay for $5,000 in TAZ ads and still not get the same exposure or quallity of exsposure

    Facebook you can target specifically what you want thats there biggest asset they have. If you compare it to TAZ then its no comparison at all, i don’t think you can say here i only want to show the ad to users in the US, 20 to 50 years old etc.

    Have you / are you able to track registration rates while the ad is running? Bounce rates?

    How does a demographically targetted ad campaign through Bing ads where 3.8 million people saw my ad for $114 compare? :)

    Both Bing Ads and Adwords will let you target age, political lean, income and so on. I believe Adwords has about 2000 different verticals, I don't know the number off hand for Bing.

    Isn't the quality of one TAZ user many thousands of times greater than one fecebook user though?

    I'm not knocking your ad spend. I just don't get it. I really want to understand but I don't see what you are getting out of it.
