Writers' Strike Winner: Facebook

The Observer, with a sort-of straight face, explains that the writer’s strike has been a boon to Facebook: Idle Hollywood execs, agents, etc are wasting their time on the site:

“You can create individual groups,” [UTA agent Dan] Erlij said enthusiastically. “You can ‘post’ on people’s ‘walls,’ you can post on your own wall. If I wanted to do something that I just wanted people to see, I could post it on my wall.” Though, he admitted, “quite frankly if it’s something that’s that significant, that’s not the way I’m going to communicate to clients.”
