Ad.ly to take another blow
Earlier this week rumors got out (more than rumors actually) that Facebook was crashing down on Ad.ly and Crowdrally services that let users post sponsored posts on their Facebook pages. This is important because this is something Facebook would rather do by its self. Attempts to speak to each company went unreturned. Today Ad.ly posted on its blog it had “complied with “Facebook’s request to no longer offer celebrity endorsement of Facebook.” The probably on both sides is they are contradicting each other. Facebook stated that Ad.ly had broken multiple terms of service rules, but Ad.ly can only find one which they admit they did create a fake Facebook account which is against the tos of Facebook. So either Facebook has honed in on one violation or ad.ly is lying, but either way someone is messing up a little bit.
