Apparently I was wrong that FB belongs to google. Must have mixed it up with YT that does belong to go ogle. Sorry, my fault.
But it’s still true that neither I nor anybody else here knows, who spent how much money for the ads. And no, I don’t care about it. :lol:

Behind (almost) every charity campaign is an advertising campaign. Too often the money is taken away from the donations. That’s bad. If Adam decided to spend the money or his management or anybody else, that’s their decision. It’s only helpful for the cause, nothing more.
And that was really my last post on that topic. Oh, and someone can stop calling us „Adam fans“ as if we weren’t Queen fans. Thank you.

There’s someone on this thread who hates Freddie Mercury and finds him repulsive 😒 One person in particular.

And I’m referring to hardcore Adam fanatics. I will not use Glambert as the term.

Saw the ad four times today. Adam’s spending a lot to get multiple views on it, especially in one day. Please don’t assume Facebook is doing it for free. I’d bet $100,000.00+ has been spent on the ad. Needs Adam’s approval. Imagine what that $ could have provided aside from advertisement encouraging others to spend their $? Anyone saying $25.00 would pay for the ad is a straight up ignorant moron.
Sorry but I'd suggest you're the ignorant one if you actually believe for one minute Adam would spend $100,000.00+ on an advert for that, he's not an idiot and if you look at the pricing (I did) you set the budget (call it $100 for arguments sake) and then set how long the ad runs for (5 days for example) and it tartgets x amount of people for the amount set. It also says it can target your own fanbase meaning people who might not be active even though they follow you so it's not just aimed at Queen fans. It also says you'd be better running an actual ad which are far more expensive if you want to target more people etc so if he had spend even close to what you suggest he'd have done a proper ad not just a sponsored post.

No idea why you're so bothered about it but to say he's spend that amount of money on a sponsored ad for that song is nuts, if he was gonna spend that money on promo it would be for his own music he knows that song got plenty promo from Queen, Brian, Roger and all the media outlets that picked it up even before they released it.

Oh and we know google are the main sponsor since they are matching donations up to $5 million as it says on their Y/Tube of the video.
Have you used Facebook advertising? I do, thank-you. More money means more views. $1,000 doesn’t even cover a lot of people. Adam is targeting people... those who have Queen as an interest on Facebook. The ads don’t even include double viewing on the price, so it’s big money.

I’m not bothered, I’m just stating a fact. However people want to dispute that with irrelevant things... it’s almost as if his diehard fans are insecure about his advertising frenzy.

The figure you quoted him spending is $100,000.00+ not $1,000.00 and I don't believe for one minute he'd spend over One hundred thousand dollars to boost that post when it's been advertised all over by the media and Queen were posting it over and over as well as Brian & Roger.

It's not me that's bothered you're the one who's kept posting about it and saying how much he's spending and claiming he could have been donating it instead, I'm just pointing out I don't believe he would spend that much to boost that post, if he did fair enough, makes no odds to me personally and it's his money to do whatever he likes with.

I think you are spending too much time on FB . ;)
Believe what you want. FB is part of go ogle.com, who are the main supporter of the song. Just saying.
Enjoy the ad, there could be worse ones. :D
How is Google the main supporter?
If you check their youtube channel with the song it says Google are donating $2 dollars for every $1 donated up to $5Million, they've passed that now so that's over $10 million raised so far.

Why not call people Adam fans? Because that is what some of you are.

How come? Do you see how little $1,000 reaches?

That’s irrelevant to Facebook. They aren’t related.
