    is how facebook operates. every day facebook beta tests an update on a limited number of pages live. on real pages, every day.

    the ones that work, it keeps. some tests last longer than others. some just days, others weeks or months. the ones that don't work, go away.

    every FB update was done live at some point without warning. it's the FB business model of experimentation.

      and Gottlieb appears to be simply pointing out that that approach can have disasterous consequences.

      •  no, he's claiming that (1+ / 0-)

        facebook is intentionally targeting animal rights and rescue groups and in the process killing dogs.

        •  I really don't think he is. (0+ / 0-)

          I agree that his diary title is potentially misleading in that way, but I took it to be rhetorical hyperbole from the start.

          He does say that it appears that there is a disproportionate amount of complaints about this issue from rescue groups, but I think he was careful not to settle strongly on the conclusion that they were intentionally targeted.  

          His main complaint appears to be against the deaf ear that facebook is turning towards rescue groups, once they've attempted to bring the problem to Facebook's attention.

          I have zero respect for your ability to reason.

          You are perfect corporate shill material. You enjoy hearing yourself argue, but you are a fool.

            but it wouldn't be right for me to do it.

            G - you have the right to voice your opinion. But when others offer you advice on how to adjust, you might want to try NOT insulting them. You kow the old saying, catch more flies with honey
