@jpwarren @5at5daily @paulwallbank Indeed it is. Facebook shouldn’t be let just brush this one away. Glad WaPo is running it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jpwarren

@paulwallbank I’m not criticising WaPo. I think it’s great they picked it up. Not a news cycle gripe. Just flagging that I’m repeating it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

Facebook’s response in the WaPo story doesn’t actually counter, indeed misrepresents, the experiment in the video. washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-swit…

Oh good. Washington Post has run that video “Facebook Fraud” I posted earlier and had in @5at5daily. washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-swit… HT @paulwallbank
