“Facebook Snatches User’s Vanity URL And Sells It To Harman International”
“This looks really, really bad. An avid Facebook user named Harman Bajwa says that his Facebook vanity Url – Facebook.com/Harman – was unceremoniously revoked yesterday for violating Facebook’s policies. His new Facebook URL is the much less memorable facebook.com/profile.php?id=538612932.
Facebook then apparently did a sales deal around the vanity URL with Harman International.”
Facebook has gotten away with a lot in the past but this is just really depressing. Do they just think they aren’t accountable to the people who use their site and give them their 350 million plus active users population? Y’know, the people that make Facebook a big deal and whatnot? Hm.
