Facebook AdI was on Facebook today and came across this advertisement in the sidebar. Is it me, or is this just plain sad? Holy destroy our self-esteem as a society and make fun of others, Batman! I hope they paid the guy who is in the picture or at least got a consent form. Is it just that I am getting to be older and beginning to see things more clearly or am I just turning into a prude? I am disgusted by this ad. I see no humor in this at all, although I understand that many will find it hilarious and that is also sad.

The ad ultimately points to Zwinky.com, which wants you to install a web browser toolbar. Total Ad Ware crap, if you ask me.

Zwinky.com is owned my IAC Search & Media and MANY users beside me also consider it adware. When looking at Zwinky.com on McAfee’s Site Advisor out of 176 people who left feedback, 6 rated the site good. The majority (140+) rated the site as “Adware, spyware, or viruses” and the rest was mixed between “Browser exploit, “This site spams,” and “Excessive popups.”

Do I think Facebook is to blame? No, but not only is this and Ad Fail, but a total Experience Fail/Company Fail.
