Dear Facebook Public Relations Team,

Last week, I was wasting my life like so many others, seeing what shenanigans my feed would serve up, when I saw this:

The screenshot with my night filter on that I’ve provided here — I promise this is not a buzz marketing campaign for f.lux — was the one I took at the moment, but the ad, sadly, was taken down by you almost immediately.

I know, because when I look in my Facebook ad history now (users can see part of their own here), I see this when I attempt to click back to the ad y’all fed me:


WTF, Facebook Public Relations Team?

Not cool.

You began this conversation with me. And I want to talk. This is now a dialogue, a conversation. You have stuff to say to me, and I have a lot I want to say back.

What did you want to say to me? (If only for a brief moment, before you changed your mind?)
