Business Tip of the Month: Avoid FaceBook Ads

Purchasing a Facebook Ad is one of the worst investments a business can make. It is much better to write compelling content. Some persons believe that the FaceBook business model is based upon deceit and fraud. Motivated critics have even went so far as investigating FaceBook Ad 'clicks', and some have reached the conclusion that many Facebook ad 'clicks' are generated by suspicious bots or other automated means.

At the same time, of course, Facebook prohibits its own users from using automated bots. Facebook is like a gigantic collection of useless parts that emits a foul odor whereupon curious onlookers flock. Hence, the large number of Facebook users.

The real value of Facebook is really not much more different than a heavily-trafficked Forum board.

In due time, I would not be at all surprised that Mark Zuckerberg, the person who apparently lifted the idea of Facebook from the pockets of Harvard personnel, will be found to be little different from Lance Armstrong; a hugely successful cheater.

Let's consider the facts about FaceBook. FaceBook, Inc DOES cheat, and FaceBook is DISHONEST per an FTC ruling this year. Fearful that Facebook would disable its Facebook account, FTC personnel DID NOT fine FaceBook for violating the privacy rights of consumers. The same FTC personnel slapped Google with a record fine for a much less serious infraction.

Is Facebook slick artist Mark Zuckerberg really the Lance Aermstrong of Social Media? Be cautious before purchasing any Facebook ads. Very few Facebook users click on Facebook ads. The ad space you buy may simply be a magnet for facebook bots.

Another routine scheme used by FaceBook is the fake post. FaceBook tricks people into believing they are "posting" content on independent third-party timelines, but in reality the "posted" content is ONLY visible to the same I.P. that posted it. This tactic is called MIRAGE POST-FRAUD (failure to provide Honest Services as required by U.S. federal laws).

It is a matter of debate about the extent of FaceBook fraud. However, it is believed in some circles that FaceBook Inc fraud is extensive. For more information about Facebook, please purchase our soon-to-be-released book detailing the tactics used by Facebook Inc to cheat consumers, advertisers, and why Facebook ads are NOT effective.

Much of the details of the book come directly from a former Facebook employee, whose relative was awarded a scholarship from National Academy of American Scholars several years ago.

We believe the true value of Facebook stock is really less than $5.00.

If FaceBook were really providing a legitimate service, then it would not have to engage in desperation tactics, censorship of legitimate products, and services, and what many consider to be deceitful conduct, etc. All of these tactics and the culture of FaceBook Inc. will cause the company to fail in due time.

Scholarship Points applies for Scholarship Points trademark

On August 15th, 2012, ScholarshipsPoints.Com embarked upon the risky business of seeking a U.S. Trademark/Service mark registration for the phrase “ScholarshipPoints.” However, the U.S. Trademark application submitted by ScholarshipPoints.Com (SeriaL Number 85704330) comes AFTER several years of use of the term “ScholarshipPoints”, and after the company has accumulated over 200,000 FaceBook Likes, and over 52,000 Twitter followers while **sharing use of the phrase Scholarship Points.

More importantly, there is little likelihood that any value will come from the newly submitted trademark application of ScholarshipPoints because there is little chance of its approval. The phrase ScholarshipPoints does not meet the legal standards of registration based upon sound legal grounds, and based upon the fact that the phrase scholarship points is also used by National Academy of American Scholars and **many other organizations to engage students and to distribute scholarship merit points for award consideration.

It is important to note that National Academy of American Scholars also uses scholarship merit points to determine, classify, and categorize scholarship applicants. We have used scholarship points for over 20 years. We encourage the U.S. Trademark office to use sound legal judgement, and then politely recite the legal facts as to why the phrase "scholarshippoints" does not merit legal protection.

We congratulate Scholarship Points on its continuing social media success. However, the ill-advised trademark application submitted by ScholarshipPoints.Com is not surprising considering the lack of general qualifications and minimal credentials needed for a student to obtain a monthly “scholarship” from ScholarshipPoints.

For scholarships, grants, and financial-aid options that will impress colleges, employers, and community leaders, we recommend that students first consider scholarships, grants, and financial-aid options that are actually sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars.

Unused Scholarship Funds

Most would agree that America's economic crisis has taken its toll on colleges, students and families. Tuition continues to climb as a result of imploded state budgets while the funds to pay for college has become increasingly harder to obtain.

Nonetheless, National Academy of American Scholars is still sponsoring over $1 million worth of Scholarships, Grants, and Loans. In fact, over $100,000 in scholarships, grants, and financial-aid targeted specifically for high-school seniors went unused last year because too many high-school counselors did not distribute literature sponsored and approved by National Academy of American Scholars.

At a time when families are struggling with unemployment and strained resources, it is not only unethical but outrageous that professional, employed, and working guidance counselors would not offer FREE informaion to students and parents seeking resourceful information about scholarships, grants, and financial-aid.

If you are a student attending any high-school in the U.S.A. and your guidance counselor DID NOT inform you or at least share information on their respective web site (via a shared link) about the numerous scholarships, grants, and financial-aid sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars then you have a legitimate complaint for misfeasance; U.S. Guidance counselors have a legal and binding duty to discharge their statutory obligations; and it is an established rule of tort and civil laws that an action lies in favour of persons injured (i.e. eligible scholarship students and unemployed parents) by misfeasance, i.e. by negligence of guidance counselors in discharge of their legal duty to share with students resourceful and valuable financial-aid information.
