Facebook loses face in Google war

[Internet and Technology Contributor, Kazim Blanche]

TechCrunch: It seems that Facebook has lost face in a dissing campaign on Google gone awry.

Burson-Marsteller, a svelte PR company had been apparently hired by Facebook to dig up the dirt on Google by reverse propaganda stories to media and consumer rights outlets. Top of the list was that Google invades people’s privacy.

However, things turned sour for Facebook  when the blogapanda blogger hired to do the dissing by the PR company, published the emails that it had sent to him on the matter. This was quickly followed up by a story in USA Today which suggested that Facebook was behind the dissing campaign on Google.

The relevant emails to the blogger from the PR company are here courtesy of  TechCrunch.
