Yet Another Facebook Story: Work @Home FTW

Because I’m open to new things, I clicked the sidebar ad on my Facebook Profile page. You might know the one. It says “Work for Google at Home. Learn how I make over $4000 a month part-time at home.” The visual is a wad of cash.
Anyway, if you click through to the campaign’s microsite, JasonMakesMoney.com, you’ll be encouraged to order a book of magic tricks from Emillionaire Institute to see how it’s all done.

I wonder how Google feels about the use of their brand in this charade.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
