Other experiments?
I've suggested a few experiments we users could do. Do you have any you want to suggest? And did you think Facebook's experiment was ethical?

There must be lots of ways to experiment with their marketing department.  How about if all 800 million of us put these shoes in our zappos shopping basket?

Apple has the right idea. Safari can no longer connect to Facebook. Sigh, oh well back to the Tube.

Re: Other experiments?
@Drew thanks for sharing my opinion.  :)

I believe that in recent past facebook was surrounded by controversies which has definitely dented its position and profits. I think they need to be carefull in comming out with different prepositions to recapture their lost stature. The experiments like this will not help them either.
