This is kind of creepy (click screen shot below for bigger image). I googled myself (yeah, I know- lame) and got a paid advertisement linking to….my profile on Ziki? I don’t think I’m really a fan of Ziki paying to get people to see my profile.
And to think I was a fan of this service !!
**Update- I am still a fan of Ziki after having learned that this ad was part of a test ad campaign detailed on their blog. Thanks to the great response by Ziki in the comments below. However- from a business perspective, I still have the same mindset I had before-
In my opinion, social networking sites that advertise to get people on a CPC basis to their site are taking the wrong approach to growing their market. If a social networking site can’t spread word of mouth, then the site is going to fail…PERIOD.
