Facebook Spamming Practices Revealed

Now here is an accusation that Zuckerberg just cannot ignore:

‘Dennis Yu, the CEO of BlitzLocal, was a guest yesterday on TechCrunch, and he shared his thoughts and knowledge about Facebook spamming and advertising.

‘BlitzLocal is an advertising agency that – by Yu’s own admission – used to be “in the business of spam”. Although they have stopped spamming, they use the knowledge acquired through it and previously built platform to do legal Facebook advertising.

‘Yu talks about the beginnings of Facebook and how Zuckerberg ran casino ads on it before he managed to get venture capital. He goes on to say that he made a sizable fortune with ads (posing as messages from Facebook) that used user’s personal information to raise the click-through rate.’
