GM unfriends Facebook, pulls $10M in ads

Anyone else (at the dealership level) had poor results from FB?

Receiving poor results with Facebook advertising is an individual issue.  The ads require precise uniqueness and targeting.  It is a local dealer responsibility, not GM's.  The other thing is, their ads change in price, due to their auction type of format.  I would've pulled my dollars out of that investment too at $10 million.  Very smart move.  Makes great business sense. 

I agree that poor results with Facebook advertising is an individual issue.  Is that Facebook's fault or GM's fault?  I tend to blame the advertiser, not the medium.  GM made their strategy, not Facebook.  You must first understand the medium before you jump in and produce faux pas.  I respect GM but I think this goes beyond selling cars.
