@Soosie 

Hey Soosie Saw this thread wanted to let you know something I have noticed Although I have a Facebook page don't get on there often but use other sites and I have realized that Google & other sites most of us use if we've allowed them to use our internet activity to reflect ads we see I see things I have searched for while shopping and sites I go to appear in my ads including AARP So possibly this could be reason you are seeing so many....just my thoughts,

Ginger : )

Why so much? With so many people reaching senior age, I would think they would be contacting you.

@AARPBriana............Does AARP pay for their ads on Facebook? Also, why are there so many?

@Soosie, there can be any different reasons why these situations arise. In order to help our members as quickly as possible, we offer customer support on Facebook (and Twitter too!). Often, we need to obtain member info and this can easily be done via Facebook messenger. While many people are aware of AARP, many are not and Facebook gives us another way to spread the word.

@AARPBriana..........I think it would be better if answers to why a member did not receive their gift, their membership card, or they are receiving too many requests to join could be found in the AARP site. When I go to Facebook, I don't expect to find 10 or more ads and replies for AARP. I thought a senior who wants to join will go to AARP and just join. I didn't realize AARP has to make a strong drive for membership.

Hi @Soosie, we do run membership ads on Facebook. We try to spread the word wherever our members and potential members are and Facebook is one of those places. We do have a dedicated social response team monitoring all of our Facebook content and responding accordingly.

Why is AARP On Facebook Trying to Get New Members?

Message 10 of 10

Every time I go on Facebook, it seems AARP is on there trying to gain members.  This seems odd to me.  Most of the replies I am seeing is that AARP is too liberal and they have posters who seem to represent AARP denying this.  Is it usual for AARP to try to gain membership through Facebook posts?
