    In the Radio Times is a brief trail for the BBC documentary "Inside Facebook" shown last night. The article gives an interesting excerpt from an interview with head of public policy, Elliot Schrage.

    "... [the] query about privacy and advertising leaves Schrage stumped. 'Well, it, I suppose, when you, so let's pause.. [long pause] That's an interesting... [longer pause] I'm... You're asking a profound question," he burbles, in a revealing gaffe"

    Hmm......

    Quote: Facebook gaffe?

    Not a gaffe, Emily Maitlis just stunned him with, what I thought was quite an absolutely brilliant clever / probing question.

    There was no need for an answer, his silence done that ! !

    It was to do with clicking the "Like" button for a product and then Facebook telling all your friends.

    ePHOTOzine does something vaguely similar ... if you use Nikon, then the Nikon Nation logo automatically appears against your image uploads.

    Following Facebook's reasoning you are endorsing the product by using that product and should therefore be happy to be associated with / advertise it.

    Emily's take on this was that whilst you may like / use something you may not want to appear to be advertising it.

    Yes, it was a very telling exchange. But what an extraordinary story.

    I know some poetic licence was used but I thought the movie The Social Network was brilliant. Whether or not you like Facebook it's a fab film.

    agreed..... and to think that it all started in his dorm room with a laptop.... and now they are just about to float it on the stock market, at an estimated worth of $100 billion !!
