HI everyone! Hope you had a great week. Nothing much to report on my end as I have been very busy doing some experiments, along with testing Hesham’s forthcoming launch of ProductSkin. Be on the look out as it will be available, very, very soon 🙂
On the other side of the world, it seems that the Germans have taken (been taking) an aggressive stance towards FaceBook, due to privacy issues. Reports are saying that any “website” that uses the “like” button must take it down until a given date or face the possibility of being fined 50K Euros (approx. $72K). Whether this will actually come into effect, still remains to be seen, but pretty soon, Germans will no longer be able to “like” anything, at least through FaceBook. I guess they will be allowed to “+1”, lol. Anyway, what do you think of this move? Will other countries follow suit?
