Companies are pitching retailers to bring the technology into their physical stores as a way to better compete with online rivals like Amazon that are already armed with troves of information on their customers and their buying habits.

fb is very glitchy. Sometimes you just need to copy the campaign and start over.

I'm not familiar with the "audience network" and I don't touch these setups myself any more, but when you target an audience you are just defining a market. It sounds like the first message you got was your defined market was simply too small to generate impressions of any volume.

Thanks Drastic, it's a moot point now, they messaged me saying that my product is illegal, even thought it's totally legal CBD oil.

That is an amusing stat, but I have to wonder if it is real or just people having fun with a survey?

I would always wonder that about some of the absurd questions reportedly asked at the Yosemite visitor center.

My experience is that if you take the completely ridiculous ones, 10-20% are clueless questioners and 80-90% are info desk people who are missing the joke. But there's still the 10-20%

I often here of crazy questions and think "Sounds like something I would ask." On Saturday the wildlife team had a booth set up for Earth Day with a plastic bear skull. I was sorely tempted to go up and ask her if it was real plastic.

Marketing / FB advertising question.
« Last post by gm66 on April 24, 2019, 04:09:56 PM »
Running my first FB advert. Geting the mesage "Your audience is too specific for your ads to be shown. Try making it broader."

But it lets me publish the ad, so i assume it will still run?

I chose not to use the audience network then that message showed up and my potential viewers dropped massively, i read that the audience network is 3rd party crap that just eats your budget, is this still the case ?

Hardware & Technology / Re: Favorite Hardware

I've just swapped out a desktop running four 23" 1920x1080 monitors for two 40" 3840x2160 Samsung TVs powered by a Dell laptop which also has a 4K screen. That would be the equivalent of 12 HD screen if I didn't have to use Windows 10's scaling to comfortably read things. It works, but it's right on the edge of what the hardware's capable of, so can be glitchy.

My favourite hardware is the ice maker on the front of the fridge.
