    I am not sure Facebook is anywhere close to being a preferred online marketing player in the big leagues, meaning real exposure and not just eyeballs. The major difference between placing an ad on Facebook and placing one on Google is that nobody goes to Facebook to search like they would do on Google.
    And amid the sea of demographics, psychographics, ethnographics, econonomigraphics and levels of technical competency I believe it is the hardest thing to try and position a brand using Facebook.

    It is a lotta fun watching flat belly and LED TV ads thrown at me on Facebook though..
