I’ve started down the Facebook Rabbit Hole this week, and have purchased $30 of advertising to people in the UK interested in History, WW1, the Indian Army and the Christmas Truce and also to the friends and family of people who’ve liked the page. Hopefully it won’t be too intrusive, but just intrusive enough.
This is the first time I’ve bought advertising on Facebook, despite being actively involved in social and campaigning groups using Facebook for a while. It’s not the first time I’ve tried to buy advertising, but it’s the first time I’ve sat down and worked the grim process through to the bitter end. Blimey, but it’s complex. All part of their cunning plan, I suspect.
On the subject of Facebook, old school ties and old boys’ networks, I also need to get in touch with other groups that might be interested, the schools they were at, since the Public Schools were such a major part of WW1 (Jim was even in the Public Schools Battalion for a while). Also, the relevant regimental and naval organisations. As an individual, I can’t hook up with the Imperial War Museum, which is annoying, I would like to benefit from their click-love.
