1. Which factors are marketers advertising on Facebook using to influence consumers? Would you be influenced by an ad if you saw your friends liked it?
I, as a consumer, never really hinge on what other people think of the product. Whether they like it or not, I still have my own perception. Although it is actually quite a good thing that I’m able to see what my friends on Facebook likes since it is clearly a form of advertising, I get introduced to different and up to date products and services.
2. How would you feel about Facebook using your name in these types of ads?
I actually don’t have anything against this idea as long as my name just pops out when I really ‘liked’ the item. It’s actually a good way to also support the people who spend their time to manufacture a product that we use. I don’t even mind writing something about a product that’s really gotten my interest.
