We don’t know if you were aware or not because it certainly flew over our heads, but social networking site Facebook launched a poll service on Friday. We can smell the spam now. But what we bet you didn’t know is that Facebook has taken it upon themselves to not only make sure the competition isn’t mentioned, but that you don’t get to say what you want.
Is Facebook Better Than Orkut? The poll question contains restricted text.
Is Facebook better than Friendster? The poll question contains restricted text.
Is Facebook better than Communist China? BINGO. works, no error message.
Is Facebook Precious? this one works.
So is Facebook better than MySpace?
Wouldn’t they like to know this sort of information so that they could actually IMPROVE their services? Seems odd to us. — Andrew Dobrow
