It my be that Facebook is starting to feel the heat or they’re just plain paranoid because of the new kid on the block. This news has been floating in the blogosphere; apparently adverts of App developer Michael Lee Johnson has been cancelled by Facebook because it violates their Terms of Service (ToS). But what stands out was his advert asking people who have Google+ account to add his Google+ account to your circles.
Here’s a screenshot of his advert.
If you’ve been running adverts on Facebook, then you should be familiar with this line; “We may refuse ads at any time for any reason, including our determination that they promote competing products or services or negatively affect our business or relationship with our users.” that’s includeded in the Facebook Advertising Guideline and most likely Facebook’s reason why Michaels’ facebook adverts were suspended.
In any case, if Micheal goal is to have his 15 minutes of fame, then he got more than what he bargain for. Of course with a little of from Facebook.
