Seriously, Facebook, What Is Up With These Obnoxious, Sexist Ads?

first_imgSpanish! Okay. I took it in college, but don’t remember much. Then comes this one: Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Then here comes her friend: Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Here’s another, but this time she’s selling solar panels in Massachusetts: Remember when Facebook was going to reinvent media and advertising? Its grandiose promise was that Facebook could deliver targeted ads with pinpoint accuracy, delivering ads that were perfectly aligned with people’s interests. As Mark Zuckerberg famously intoned in 2007, “Once every hundred years, media changes.”If that’s the case, how come it’s now 2013 and my Facebook homepage is littered with ads that remind me of the cheap one-column ads you used to see in the back pages of “men’s magazines,” back in the day? Why am I getting all these crappy, annoying ads featuring women with enormous breasts urging me to learn a second language or buy solar panels?It’s not just me. My buddy Lonn Johnston yesterday posted a copy of one of these obnoxious big-boob ads, because apparently they’re popping up in his feed too.The problem isn’t the boobs, per se. I’m sure Lonn likes boobs as much as I do. But it’s the cheesiness. It’s all so low-rent and tacky.Adding a touch of irony is the fact that Facebook’s chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, is a brainy accomplished woman who has just penned a book called Lean In, which is all about empowering women with a new brand of can-do, you-go-girl feminism. Sandberg has launched an organization and a website, Lean In, where women are urged to share stories that “paint a picture of the shared struggles and obstacles we all face.”All well and good. And today is International Women’s Day, for what that’s worth, and Google is celebrating this with a doodle about women from around the world.Meanwhile, here are some of the ads I’ve seen on Facebook over the past few weeks. The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos French! Awesome. I could learn to pronounce croissant the way the cool academic types in Cambridge do. But I’m starting to notice a trend here. More of same here: Lean In? You BetchaThis gives new meaning to the phrase “lean in,” right? But seriously, what is this crap doing on Facebook? And what’s next, ads for X-ray specs and Charles Atlas muscle-building programs? Ron Jeremy male enhancement pills? Look, I’m no prude. I get that Facebook needs to make money. I get that they’re under pressure. God knows, all of us who work in ad-supported businesses are searching for some kind of silver bullet, and in our search we’re all trying a little bit of everything.But this stuff is just so cheap and inauthentic. And how does it square with Sheryl Sandberg’s mission to empower women? I don’t want to make too big a deal of this. I realize Sandberg doesn’t personally sell the ads or approve each one. But the contrast is a bit jarring.I’m guessing Sandberg wrote her book because she intends to run for public office at some point, and that her global campaign (launched with A-list book parties like this one hosted by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg) is about raising her own profile and introducing herself to a wider audience. This is a woman who at age 27 was Chief of Staff to the U.S. Treasury Secretary. She’s still young (43) and her ambitions surely go way beyond playing second fiddle at a social networking company.But while she’s still at Facebook, and since she’s so committed to empowering women, maybe Sandberg could do something about these ads. Not even out of any kind of feminist crusade, but just because, well, they’re stupid and obnoxious and a throwback to a kind of moronic advertising that long ago became obsolete.  Related Posts Tags:#Ads#Facebook#Lean In#Mark Zuckerberg#Sheryl Sandberg dan lyons A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more

Philam Life kicks football clinic into high gear with Tottenham Hotspur coaches

Held at the McKinley stadium, the students learned the basic rudiments of football such as dribbling, shooting, core skills, and passing the ball. Shaun, who has been with the team for almost 10 years, said that mental strength is the most important aspect to be the best. “How do they push themselves to be better each week? How do they react when things get tough? Talent might be enough for youth football, but it’s the mental toughness and character that will get you a career in the game. We’ve seen some good players on our travels, and they have shown not only technical ability, but the passion and drive to complement. In football, you don’t have to be the fastest, strongest, tallest, or most physically fit to be a good player.”  Anton once played for the Tottenham Hotspur Academy before becoming a development coach. “I was fortunate enough to play with some world-class athletes and be coached by the best so I believe it shaped me in my current role, sharing my knowledge and trying to develop good players and people,” he said. “Football offers so many positives outcomes. It’s fun and enjoyable for all ages and ability levels. It allows you to stay active and healthy, and it teaches life skills that can help you in all aspects of life, such as communication, teamwork, and resilience,” he added.Although football can be a very demanding sport, Shaun says there are many benefits which can be used to maintain a healthy lifestyle. “The combination of running, kicking, jumping and changing direction, will ultimately increase stamina, reduce body fat, increase strength, and improve balance and coordination. Beyond that, football can also develop key life skills. There are huge psychological and social benefits, such as teamwork, problem-solving, leadership skills and decision making.”ADVERTISEMENT SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew MOST READcenter_img Know more about Philam Life and Philam Foundation by visiting their website at philamlife.com, Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/PhilamLifeAIA/, or contact them through email at philamlife@aia.com or landline at (02)528-2000. ADVT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES TAGUIG CITY, PHILIPPINES – Philam Life, the country’s premier life insurance company, recently brought to Manila football coaches from the world-famous Tottenham Hotspur to conduct a football clinic for high school students as part of their ongoing global partnership with AIA, Philam Life’s Hong Kong-based parent company.ADVERTISEMENT Hontiveros presses for security audit of national power grid View comments Panelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Anton Blackwood and Shaun Harris are members of the Tottenham Hotspur’s Global Football Development program who work with players of all levels around the world, nurturing local talent. “Philam Life partnered with the 7’s Football League to help develop the sport.

My life as a failure

first_imgI was so inspired by Mark Rovner‘s encouraging response to my last post that I thought I’d admit more failure. I hate to fail, but through the cozy, comfortable viewpoint of hindsight, I can say that my failures are among the great moments in my life because they make me stretch. My first public speaking experience was horrific — a stammering recitation of written notes. And I was supposed to be a moderator on a panel! Now I think I’m a good speaker, but only because I was driven to improve by a serious fear of repeating that humiliation. When I wrote my book, I had to admit failure halfway through. I realized on page 140 that the book was only starting to work and threw out everything I’d written up to then. I finished the book, then went back and rewrote the first half. Though I nearly went mad over the process, the book and I were better for it.My favorite jobs are those when I feel scared at the sheer immensity of the tasks before me about 49% of the time. I hate that discomfort, but it makes me creative, productive and excited by my work.On NPR’s This I Believe, columnist Jon Carroll recently said:Failure is how we learn. I have been told of an African phrase describing a good cook as “she who has broken many pots.” If you’ve spent enough time in the kitchen to have broken a lot of pots, probably you know a fair amount about cooking. I once had a late dinner with a group of chefs, and they spent time comparing knife wounds and burn scars. They knew how much credibility their failures gave them.I have more scars than I can count.Failure is a big part of marketing. Most campaigns fail. Most messages start a bit off target. Most appeals for dollars don’t rake in cash. That’s okay, as long as we look at them as broken pots and tweak our recipes. Admit the dish tasted bad and go find your missing ingredients. I’m certainly still on a quest for them myself.last_img read more
