Recently poor little billionaire Mark Zuckerberg has been the target of more than a little derision and just about as much criticism. Now some of this avarice is, no doubt, the result of jealousy. After all nobody likes the fact that the geek they regularly pantsed back in middle school can now buy and sell them.
But an awful lot of it is legitimate.
The laundry list of Facebook problems, however, has just been shortened. Those looking to remove their data from the cyber behemoth – a task sometimes impossible in the past – have been provided with a rather novel solution. Just be critical of the President.
News Radio 550 KFYI gets a thumbs up from us for breaking this story:
Facebook said Friday it mistakenly removed a post in which Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer criticized a controversial policy decision by President Barack Obama’s administration to limit deportations of illegal immigrants.
Mistakenly? Yeah, right.
The Republican governor had said in a post Friday that Facebook censored the item she posted Thursday because it apparently violated Facebook’s community standards.
Brewer didn’t elaborate in her post, but she said Friday in an interview that an email she received from Facebook said the post was removed because of an included illustration.
The email, which she read aloud, didn’t specify how the illustration violated standards.
“I’d like to know why it happens,” she said of the removal.
Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes responded to a query by The Associated Press by saying in a brief email that Brewer’s post was removed in error and that Facebook was sorry.
Any one up for an invitation to Google+ ?
