How to Save Your Facebook Application Tabs

Facebook-Tabs-Going-Away1

[W]e are removing application tabs from user profiles.
Starting this Wednesday, users will no longer be able to add them.

The writing is on your Wall.

The Bad News. Your Facebook application tabs are going away Wednesday, November 3, 2010, due to low usage rates.  That includes tabs for games and services like ReverbNation, Friend’s O Mine, Etsy, etc.

The Good News. They can stay on pages. Facebook says it will continue supporting application tabs on Facebook Business Pages and Fan Pages. According to Facebook developer’s page, “We will, however, continue to support existing implementations of the older authentication mechanism as well as FBML on Page tabs and applications.”

Why? It’s all part of Facebook’s Road Map, a framework for the future direction of the Facebook Platform.

Chalk one up for the Men in Black

FTC takes down bad business. Scores one for business and consumers.

A U.S. district court ruled in favor of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) who successfully sued Inc21.Com for illegally slamming businesses and consumers into internet service accounts.

From the FTC’s release,

“The most compelling proof of these violations is a comprehensive expert survey of 1,087 of defendants’ so-called ‘customers.’ This survey revealed that nearly 97 percent of defendants’ ‘customers’ had not agreed to purchase defendants’ products. Even more egregious, only five percent of them were even aware that they had been billed.”
