The social media story bubbling this morning is that the blogger and social media pundit Robert '5000-friends' Robert Scoble has been kicked off Facebook and all traces of his account have been removed.
Facebook told him it was because he was running programmes on his Facebook account (which Facebook terms as illegal). We're not sure what kind of software, but it probably takes info from his friends and gives it to him in a shareable format. Here's what Mike Butcher at TechCrunch UK says on the story.
Question is, will Facebook care that the man who has more 'friends' than Facebook allows a user to have is angry at them? Or that his massive fan club now thinks Facebook is bad? Or will the long tail of millions of Facebook users with normal amounts of friends, the original Facebook users, the ones who don't know and would never care to know about Scoble and his club, always remain priority number one?
