I wrote a blog this morning about how Josh had used Facebook to learn more about the Yahoo attrition. While I was writing that, he must have been busy writing his public apology titled, “How to lose fans and (falsely) influence people“. Turns out not only did Facebook burn it’s users, but it burned him too. Due to Facebook’s aggressive advertising, he accidentally put pictures of people that *currently work at Yahoo* onto ads which read, “Leaving Yahoo!”. Of course, there is no indication that these poor folks had any intention of leaving. Yikes! Not only is that a gaffe, that’s just plain wrong!
None of this is Josh’s fault. This is Facebook’s broken platform.
