    [Marketing] Why Facebook’s Political Moves Should Terrify Us All
    It hurts me to talk trash on them when our Facebook Marketing Firm is getting new customers by the bushel. Power is often something that is earned. It’s also something that can be taken by making the right moves. As Facebook continues to expand its reach in Washington , alarm bells should be ringing in every one of our skeptical minds. For the most part, it will go unnoticed. It’s like the perfect bomb – two components that are benign by themselves but deadly when mixed. It will prove to be deadly. Believe what you will, but don’t be foolish or blind.
