GM Advertising!

I have no opinion on GM good or bad, but it appears they're asking themselves some important questions and acting on their findings. In itself, that's a good thing IMO, you can't accuse them of being asleep at the wheel switch! I wish them well...

I have seen thousands of GM ads in my life, yet I have never been motivated to purchase a GM product. Since I am part owner of GM, I concur with their decision.

Either that or they're running out of money again and frantically trying to figure out what works. I wonder if people see Ford ads on Facebook and rush out to buy one.

I wonder if the government is becoming an activist shareholder. One question from the TARP office and suddenly GM is afraid to be caught spending money on FB?
