So we don't know about you, but we're definitely rethinking where our ad-spend goes. That's not to say that Facebook is dry, but it definitely shouldn't be where you're investing everything you've got!
Raise your hand if you can leave things at the door when you get to work! Anyone…? For most people (maybe all), this isn't possible.
