Everyone gets bombarded with ads. From television, radio, billboard & signs and even YouTube videos and in social media feeds. Ads are pushed on us daily.

People who friend request us on Facebook don’t want to see ads. They want to see what we are all about.
The purpose of social media engagement is not to push company ads.
If our company felt that ads would work better than engagement with conversation on social media, our company would not need us. They would push ads.
