Your Brand Is Still Not My Friend

Via AgencySpy, we learn that Wal-Mart's attempt to put up a page on Facebook turned into a fiasco as over 300 people left anti-WalMart messages on the page, including this one from a Janine Carmona, who succinctly states the "Your Brand Is Not My Friend™" credo

Facebook should take the number of negative comments on this page as a note that we don’t support this company [for] its use of a space for social networking. This space is for people talking to other people. Facebook, get your priorities straight.

FYI for all:
Found this nice YBINMF-ish article outside of the Adweek/Adage/ad blog realm, so hopefully that means the backlash is spreading. Enjoy.

Thanks FATC.
That link deserves its own post.

Coming tomorrow.
