only morons who invest in the fraud do this. That is why GOOG will always eat FB and other social nonsearch lunch. They believed the pipe dream they were sold that because eyeballs are there that is where the ads should be. But they forgot the eyeballs are not there to shop but to socialize. Not a good platform for shopping. IBM stats below support this fact. Advertisers will soon tire of spending good money and getting nothing in return. Preferred Advertisers are already leaving FB.
In tracking traffic and sales at about 800 e-commerce sites, IBM says it found that only about one percent of visits to e-commerce sites this week come from social networks, according to Jay Henderson, strategy director for IBM. And, once again, just a fraction of one percent of overall orders are made by people coming to the e-commerce site directly from a social network, he said
IBM isn’t releasing the exact percentage of online sales attributed to social sites as it did last year — when it said that social sites accounted for just .34 percent of online Black Friday sales — because it says the numbers aren’t much different.
