Facebook advertising at its best

It is known that the Facebook advertising is very aggressive sometimes and that it very often fails.

Very often I find strange ads and I click on the details in order to to see why was it displayed to me.

If you click on Hide Ad:

And then, for example, click on “Irrelevant”:


Then, you can click on “Why did I see this ad?”.

I found very strange to see one ad for some kind of sales training and process improving (?!).

To my surprise, I’ve seen that the ad was targeting “Star Wars” fans… :))


The other two requirements are always the same:

– 18+

– location Germany



So, is this intended and there is actually some study that shows that Star Wars fans are more inclined to buy consulting for improving sales ?

What do you think ?
