Status update: not friends

My Friday night reading consists of both the Daily Telegraph and The Times. Not a bad collection at all if I may say so. Both papers give quite a lot of exposure to the rather embarrassing affair of Facebook vs Google. Apparently Facebook has tried to attack Google with ‘a slur campagin of dirty tricks’ by hiring a top global PR agency to place negative stories about Google in magazines and online. This is of course a result of the search engine giant’s plan to launch a number of social networking products in the next few months. It is interesting that Facebook’s global press team is run by a former Google executive and perhaps he has gotten a bit nervous.

Whoever thought this was a good idea cannot know about the basic rule of competition:- You do not grow taller by chopping somebody else’s head off!
