Yesterday it was reported that BP had bought up a bunch of ad space on Google and Yahoo. When you search for anything related to BP or the oil 'spill' a link to BP's Gulf Response PR page will be at the top of your screen.
I was just on my personal Facebook page and came across this gem:
All Facebook ads are posted with a little 'x' in the upper right hand corner. If you click on the 'x' it will bring up a question asking you why you don't like the ad. Your options are: Uninteresting, Misleading, Offensive, Repetitive, Other. I had a very difficult time choosing between Misleading and Offensive, but decided to go with Offensive. And since I did that, I will never have to see that ad again. A small, yet satisfying victory.
If only this advertising money was going towards saving wildlife and cleanup costs and the fishermen and everyone else affected by this disaster.
