Facebook Banning Google+ Advertisement

Based in this Article: http://techcrunch.com/2011/07/15/google-ad-on-facebook-is-banned/, Facebook is banning Google+ advertisements. Many people are complaining about that which makes you wonder, doesn’t Facebook has the right to do that? You never see advertisements on CBS for NBC, Adidas advertising Nike, or Coca-Cola promoting Pepsi. So why should Facebook be treated any differently? Google + explicitly declared that its challenging Facebook, which means the previous examples fit in the same category as Facebook vs. Google+.

In the class blog we are discussing if this is a net neutrality issue. Is it? Facebook is not blocking or deleting messages or wall posts sent by Facebook users to each other about Google+. People are even using Facebook to ask for Google+ invitations. If Facebook blocked or deleted such messages you would wonder if it is a net neutrality issue. Even if they do want to delete such messages, do you blame them? How would you feel if others are using your product to use another. This reminds me of a Banned commercial for Pepsi and Coca-Cola: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAP2yVsgI6c

Is this a proper use of ones product to get another? should we enable this or stop it?
