Facebook on Tuesday confirmed that Ethan Beard, the former director of social media at Google, will join the privately held company as director of business development. Mr. Beard is the second high-profile executive this month to leave Google, a company that was widely considered one of the best places to work in Silicon Valley.

Next at Facebook: Friend Quality Scores - if your profile doesn't have enough on it to really interest your visitors and engage it, you just won't be shown on friend lists, search results or group listings any more without making an extra payment per click.

I don't doubt for a minute. Recently, I was seaching for a friend I was sure it was there, since I saw her profile through her sister account. I searched for her, and the results returned just one result, and it wasn't her. She has a very particular combination of name+lastname, so it was just two people with that name, but she not appearing. Then, I used the "advanced search" and then my friend came up. I notice, she has a very narrow profile, with no photo. Could that by why?
