I’m doing promotions and advertising via Facebook on my last bit of good news that I shared using the page devoted to “A Man’s Passion.”
Well, I got results from various people and four interesting comments which all four implied or downright accused my post of being spam.
I’m of a mind to think that these four people for whatever reason either don’t understand the difference between promoting a product and somehow enticing someone to buy something that isn’t what it appears. In the promotion I put out that the Book, A Man’s Passion, was recently entered into an international book promoting competition through an advertising/marketing company. I commented that I hoped the competition proved fruitful and profitable for me in terms of sales.
I don’t know where in this post was there an implication that I was enticing people to buy a nonexistent product. Are they ignorant of what spam actually means? Or do they believe that promoting any product is spam and should be banned from social media?
If the latter is the case then these same people will probably quit Facebook if they have to pay for the privilege of posting their thoughts on this social network platform, because advertising these pages pays the bills.
Needless to say, I was thunderstruck by their comments, one of which was so foul I won’t repeat it here. It just saddens me to think there are people out there who are so narrow minded in their views that anyone else with a counterview is seen as a threat to their pathetic existence.
