Google+ ads was taked off by facebook

Sunday, July 17th 2011. | Internet News

Google+ has already attained a user base of 10 millions, unaffected by the restrictions imposed by Facebook in importing the contacts from its site. Facebook seems to be unnerved by the emergence and growth of its competitor and is trying all its weapons to block its way. A web developer, Michael Lee Johnson had placed an advert on Facebook to get more followers on Google+, Facebook, took it off.

The advert called for those “lucky enough” to have a Google+ account to add Johnson, who calls himself an Internet Geek, App Developer and Technical Virtuoso, as a friend.

Facebook had also cancelled other campaigns run by Johnson to add further injury.

Unlike Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt who thinks that there is enough room for other networking giants like Facebook and Twitter, Facebook doesn’t like its competitors’ products plugged in on its ad system.
According to the terms of services in Facebook, the company doesn’t allow any products plugged in on its ad system, even through third parties.

One of the clauses Facebook called upon to justify the move says, “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.”

But cancelling all of Johnson’s campaigns appear to be a little extreme and Matyszczyk rightly suggests that Johnson may sue Facebook for the “emotional distress” and “damage to his reputation,” Itproportal reported.
