This heralds big changes in AU for marketers
A landmark ruling that Facebook is an advertising medium - and not just a way to communicate - will force companies to vet comments posted by the public to ensure they are not sexist, racist or factually inaccurate.

In a move that could change the nature of the social networking site forever, companies could be fined or publicly shamed for the comments that appear on their Facebook ''brand'' pages.

The question is whether that sort of regulation could spill over into other markets. It seems that this sort of regulation would really put a damper on FB Pages for any company.
