social notworking

Here’s the short of it:

A company named Sambreel offered an application called Pagerage that lets FaceBook users customize the look of their page.


Sounds okay until you learn Pagerage was hijacking the ad spaces and replacing them with ads of their own, making revenue for themselves but cutting off the ad revenue that FaceBook had intended to earn.

The mighty FaceBook was not pleased.


So FaceBook blocked Pagerage users 
and near violence ensued. 

Sambreel responded with a nasty antitrust lawsuit claiming people had a right, and today a San Diego U.S. District Judge shoved it right up Sambreels, um, social portal.

Bottom line: Use FB the way FB says or lose it. 


That sounds right.
