Facebook Inc. has raided Google Inc. to hire a new chief operating officer, providing the popular online social network with more seasoned management and advertising savvy as it strives to make more money without alienating its audience.

Sheryl Sandberg's defection from Google, announced Tuesday, represents a coup for Facebook just three months after it suffered a humiliating setback in its effort to inject more commercialism into its fun-loving Web site.

Google is facing some problems, and their stock going down some 40% from their high is not helping.

Hmmmm. First rat to leave the ship? You got to love the smoke she is blowing up everyone's ass about Zuckerburg. I wonder if he believes the BS himself. Clarity and vision. Funny.

I heard that Mark Zuckerberg had a crush on her and that's why she got the job.
Ahh, puppy love...

I agree, her comments on Zuckerberg seem way over the top and a bit different than what everyone else seems to say about him.
