Good marketing takes a lot of hard work and a keen eye for detail. Clearly, the promotion teams for the following images were missing that keen eye. These advertisement fails will give you a whole new appreciation for the people who get it right.

Oh, and if you suddenly stopped seeing most of the SDL posts, you're not alone. Recent changes to what is shown on your wall were implemented, and it's out of our control. To help with this: go to the page and do two things: first, enable "follow," and then make sure you have it set to receive notifications for new posts. Of course, the more you interact with different posts on the page, the more Facebook will show you in the future. Hope this helps!
