After the recent update over a month ago, not only am I not able to view ANY notifications whatsoever in this app (yes notification settings are all turned on, but the notification page shows “no notifications” even after the badge at the bottom is displayed as having new notifications within the app) but EVEN WORSE - now I can’t view, edit, do ANYTHING with any of my ad sets, only my campaigns! I select ad sets from any campaign and it just says “failed to load” on the would-be ad set display page!!! And the campaigns are visible, but they stopped showing data on the campaign level altogether! I relied on this app for my business since I was frequently on the go. Now it’s become completely useless to me for two months now. (And I NEVER get a response, message, feedback, ANYTHING from anyone about this problem!) Ive even uninstalled and reinstalled the app, made sure my phone and apps were all up to date - NOTHING WORKS. I have an iPhone 8 Plus, current software. SOMEONE HELP!!!!!!
I normally don’t even feel strongly about apps. But man, oh man. These reviews are pretty unfair! This is a great app for anyone who’s comfortable with basic decent graphic design, knows how to create an audience, and read metrics to improve the performance of their advertising. I’ve worked as both a part time social media manager for a nonprofit organization on a university campus, with upwards of 1.8k likes on the page being added to my tenure with the effective use of the ads and the Ads Manager. I’m now a supervisor at an authorized dealer of prepaid wireless service, and I use the app to run the promotions for a store in the Inland Empire region in California. Using the audience parameters, I’ve been able to increase our sales with very limited and strategic use of location-based advertising. It’s a good app. Keep it up!
The ads do great if you target them right. The bad side is dealing with Facebook. Every so often they charge a lil’ more than they should. (They will fix it after a day or 2 of arduous efforts to contact almost non existing support). The tactics and trickery they use to scam you are amazing. Including the new update in which they invalidate small pages to be able to advertise specifically for likes. They always try to squish the small guy. Facebook hides organic content to thousands of followers and then gives you this scam machine to waste absurd amounts of money on a faulty service that constantly looks for a way to make you spend the most and once you reach people, they hide you again from them so you need to pay again. It’s truly abusive how this system treats creative people trying to branch out.
I was using Facebook ads until I noticed my sales decreased even though I was running thousands of dollars of ads. Facebook ads was sending fake bots to my page while charging me for real traffic even. Facebook ads charged me money to send fake bots, fake followers, fake likes, fake interactions and fake website visits. Facebook ads is a scam. I bought 1,000 followers/likes from Facebook ads but when I post only 20 people see my posts and no matter how many ads I run my sales decrease! Please take my advice and advertise elsewhere. I contacted support and they hung up in my face. Their support is terrible! Also they started charging my debt card for small dollar amounts everyday. My bank statement had a million small charges cause Facebook ads wants to be paid daily not to mention they started overcharging me cause they noticed I wasn’t paying attention to their ads. That’s also when they started sending a lot of bots and overcharging on the price.
I can’t even begin to explain the holes in the app and site. The customer service in nonexistent. Someone might send you the same automated message 2 weeks after you try to report a problem. For me, I built up an instagram profile, and then a payment went through RANDOMLY and was denied because it WAS NOT SCHEDULED and i do not keep money in that specific checking account. I tried many times to pay the .20¢, YES, TWENTY CENTS that I owed, but everything about the app glitches out. It banned me from trying to pay, and it disabled my account. I’ve reached out and gotten the same response at least 15 times. “We’re sorry... we see the issue... we’re reactivated your account.” Except my account is never actually reactivated. I’m no longer the admin of my own Facebook page, and I cannot disconnect my instagram account from the page. I’m 100% helpless to have this issue fixed. BE WARNED THIS APP IS ABSLOUTE SH**.
This app makes me want to bang my head against the wall. It freezes, it doesn’t publish ads, even if it looks like the ad is active, it doesn’t actually publish but doesn’t let you know, what’s in the app doesn’t correspond well with what you see in a browser, adds disappear. What a disaster. I could understand the poor quality when it was first launched, but why is this app still so unbelievably poor quality? Obviously Facebook has a monopoly position, which is why I come back to it, but I really hope a new platform takes over, just because adversing on Facebook is such a stressful, frustrating, disastrous experience. And while I am a paying customer, there is no customer service. Barf, absolutely terrible.
I’ve used this app for a few years and it has been a wonderful tool to help me change my ads quickly and efficiently. Until something changed and the ability to edit my ad by choosing a previous post that has been getting a good response, is no longer an option. Now if I have an ad running and want to edit it, I can only edit a picture (choose a new one) or edit the text, among other things. So to change my ad and keep the same audience, budget etc, I now have to choose my picture and save it, and then go back into it and change the text. I feel it is forcing my to just buy another ad set and I don’t like it. I generally have just set my budget and let it run indefinitely and would go in every week or so and pick a new post to advertise. Now it’s a lot more trouble and I’m thinking I may have to end my ad every few days and start all over to instead of simply editing it. Can’t we get that option back please??!!
Not only is the support for problem non existent & beyond generic but they don’t even try to personalize banning or solutions when they make a mistake & van the wrong person. Like they’ve banned me from paying for more ADs after I’ve already spent $200 I worked truly hard to get together as a single mother for my FB page that empowers women & is a support group that sometimes needs to use certain words like trauma or addiction simply to explain you can recover & spread hope. It needs to be case by case the trigger words. YET THERES PAGES ADVERTISING DEGRADING PHOTOS & CHILDREN IN NOTHING BUT UNDERWEAR CLAIMING ITS A KIDS LINGERIE LINE & THATS OKAY CAUSE ITS LABELED UNDER CLOTHING?! But I can’t provide a service helping women empower women & end bullying?! And instead of providing a solution to this error on their part I’ve spent weeks messaging just to keep receiving the same generic message for weeks. So now I’ve lost all my advertising money to this group just for it to shut down my ability to advertise & waste all of the money I have trying to make a life for my child & help create a world of hope. DONT WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY OR WORK FIND A BETTER ADVERTISING PLATFORM FOR SURE. WORST EVER AND I NEVER REVIEW THINGS BUT I HAD TO PREVENT OTHERS FROM ENDURING WHAT IVE ENDURED.
