Facebook and Google are at war! And it’s all about your address book.
Until recently, you could import Gmail data into Facebook. But, Google decided it was unfair that it couldn’t get Facebook data, so it shut down access to Facebook.
As far as battles go, this strikes us as one of the smallest, most petty, battles out there.
Yes, it makes sense that Google doesn’t want to help Facebook continue to grow, especially since Facebook is fast becoming the only company that will threaten Google. But, it runs against Google’s standard operating procedures.
And, hello, Facebook probably doesn’t need Gmail at this point to grow its user base.
