This email I got from Facebook

 "The balance on your ad account Stache9434 is empty. As a result, any active ads have been turned off. Please add money to turn them on or to create new ads"

So if I don't give them any money I won't  see ads? Alrighty then.

FYI, I got the same e-mail a few days ago, and I figured it was spam, so I deleted it.  This morning, I got an apology e-mail from them, saying it was sent in error.  So, look out for that in a few days.  :)

Ha! If I was an ordinary Facebook user I'd think the same thing.

This type of message should have been targeted at Facebook advertisers -- the ones you may (or may not) have noticed placing the sponsored posts in your newsfeed that you didn't ask for.
