Increasing Facebook 'likes' cost State Department $630,000; Hillary's watch

[Another reason for incarcerating Hillary Clinton.]
Facebook ‘likes’ come at high cost to State Department
7-3-2013

The State Department dished out more than $600,000 in Facebook advertising campaigns in an attempt to increase its fan base on Facebook.

According to an inspector general report, the department increased its Facebook fans from 100,000 to more than 2 million “likes” over two major advertising campaigns. The advertising also helped to increase fan counts for State’s foreign language pages, now with more than 450,000 fans.

The Bureau of International Information Programs spent the money on these advertising campaigns between 2011 and March 2013.

For many agencies, it’s illegal to spend money on social media advertising, and an agency with a successful social media strategy will rarely resort to paid advertising, according to one insider.

Hillary puts on prison fashion show before the guards.


Do you like the orange or green? Perhaps the historic black & white stripe? If choosing black & white, how about black & white penny loafers?

Really good one, kevink!

Her hypocrisy is stunning.

So the State Department paid liars to lie.

Does anyone consent to this criminal behavior?

Free includes debt-free!

This is a TOTAL OUTRAGE----bump this up!

You know, our government is SO PHONY---spewing forth concerns of us being trillions of dollars in debt, then, spending money like this---oh, just to increase the fanbase of Facebook?---right---and we know why they want to do that, don't we.

I don't have a FB account. I started to once, then, canceled it with hardly any more information than they don't already have.

I shuddered at the thought now that THESE TYRANTS have been storing all our photos into their Utah & now San Antonio NSA databases! They can use these photos to eliminate ANYBODY from existence, NO MATTER if the photos are innocent, like some young boys holding guns or rifles or anything, you know what I mean?

THIS WHOLE NSA THING MAKES ME PUKE!

Correct. This social networking activity is illegal.

At least it was supposed to be. I'm sure that known liar/Fast & Furious Eric Holder will soon say that this money was legally spent, another hypocrisy.
