Montana Lt. Gov. John Walsh, who is seen as a possible Senate candidate in 2014, reportedly suffered from a Facebook snafu after “liking” a page devoted to women's breasts. A Republican operative captured a screenshot of Walsh indicating that he gave a thumbs up, or “like,” on the Facebook profile of “Breasts.Proof men can multitask2” on Aug. 19, according to BuzzFeed. The “like” was subsequently deleted from Walsh's Facebook page. BuzzFeed quotes a “senior Montana Democrat close to Walsh” as saying Walsh “liked” the cleavage page by mistake/Judy Kurtz, The Hill.

Question: Are you careful re: what you “like” on your Facebook page?
Facebook users who check in to a store or “like” a brand may soon find those actions re-transmitted on their friends' pages as a “Sponsored Story” paid for by advertisers. Currently there is no way for users to decline this feature. Facebook says this lets advertisers promote word-of-mouth recommendations that people already made on the site. The new, promoted posts would keep the same privacy setting that the original posting had. But involving users in advertisements without their consent has been a thorny for Facebook/Associated Press.

Question: Will this new Facebook intrusion prevent you from clicking 'like' now?
