If a Facebook executive calls an Uber car, is it a one-way trip? Following in the footsteps of former Facebook Public Policy Manager Andrew Noyes, who left the social network for the private driving service startup in May, Facebook Head of International Growth Ed Baker joined Uber as head of growth.
A new Facebook Connect application has spread quickly around the Facebook social graph by tagging all of a user’s friends who have the same zodiac sign. This is the latest in a series of new photo tagging applications which have been spreading like wildfire across the site. The Facebook platform lets users easily tag their friends but by prompting users for unrestricted posting and unrestricted photo upload permissions, the application is able to spread like crazy. It leads me to wonder whether Facebook will begin cracking down on these types of apps.
