    Moral of the story: don't use "Auto bids"
    Ive never 'boosted post' before, I had it auto bid for the most impressions.
    I never really understood that because if I have a max bid of $40, and I only want to pay $1.50,
    it will take slower but still get to $40 of advertising.
    But I just ran an ad with auto bid and apparently it just cost me $35.40/per 1000 impressions

    ridiculous

    LOL same shit happened to me.

    I tried using auto bidding with CPC and spent $50 (my campaign budget) and got like 6-7 clicks. -_-

    Fuckers, I sent them an email about it - will see if they will refund me :p

    For me, ads work fine on verified pages but on normal pages they aren't that good. It seems Facebook is making it to where they want us to pay for Ads more, they are greedy.

    yep, those ads can be quite expensive at times, i created a campaign for website clicks and set it to 0.2 cents per click, what i saw after a few days is that the a website click was at $3 per click, because facebook was also counting for the likes and share the ads themselves got, which i had no interest in, i was only looking for people to go to the website, not like my ads...

    Thanks for sharing your story. I've been using auto-bide for all my FB ads, not a problem yet. Need to be more careful from now on.
