Even an “avid Facebook fan” is now angry with the company’s silence on Beacon. Nick O’Neill on allfacebook:
After talking with some large agency representatives tonight, I’m realising that Facebook has been damaging their momentum with brands over the past week. One person that I spoke with informed me that a number of their larger clients were extremely hesitant about any advertising or marketing campaign that involves Facebook due to the negative press that has been going around.
O’Neill recommends a public statement. So does Robert Scoble. So do we. And Josh Quittner over at Fortune has even written the company’s obituary. (It’s true, though: We’re going to get bored of this issue pretty soon–as, we imagine, will everyone else).
