Google+ ad removed from Facebook

Web developer Michael Lee Johnson recently decided he was going to run a small Facebook marketing campaign. They goal? To get his Facebook friends to add him to their circle on Google+.

Facebook didn’t like this idea at all, in fact they disliked it so much, they ban him from Facebook. Johnson writes on Google+:

LOL: I recently ran a Google+ advertisement on Facebook that got all of my campaigns suspended. – Great.

The message from Failbook said the following:

Yeah, Facebook really dosen’t like people promoting competitor social networks on their ad network, can you blame them? And for those who will ask, yes that actually is in Facebook’s Terms of Service.
