I noticed something strange in facebook’s “Promote post” system. I started promotion for article in one group and stopped it before it was approved. However, surprise was that they charger me 5$ for that I claimed it via paypal and received money back. In Facebook they didn’t even try to respond to my claim. So i had to wait for 20 days to get 5$ back.
I’m wondering, if anyone else noticed the same???
I recently published web site (http://www.adriablues.com) for a friend and he asked me to promote it on facebook. As usual, i placed analytics code in page on the very same day. We didn’t try to promote web site anywhere else. Strange thing happened. Facebook add was linked directly to web page URL however, i noticed in Google Analytics three time less page views than clicks for which facebook charged us. And when i viewed referrer clicks, it was even less from facebook.
Please, review print screens together with dates and number of clicks reported by Facebook and by Google analytics.
I would not comment any more for now. It’s just what happened!?!?!?

I just logged in my FB account, and i got this FASCISM message. FACEBOOK DON’T LIKE IF YOU COMPLAIN WHEN THEY LIE ABOUT YOUR CLICKS. BIG BROTHER HA HA HA
