Spokane Public Radio station KPBX last week discovered that its Facebook page had attracted the wrong kind of friend. In the middle of its spring pledge drive, station staff on Friday spent several hours scrambling to remove a Facebook link to a sexually explicit website using the name “Spokane public radio.” The link to the porn site included a thumbnail-size image of a couple engaged in sexual activity. That link and photo appeared as the second result if someone searched on Facebook for “Spokane Public Radio.” KPBX board Chairman J. Scott Miller may have been one of the first to see the offending material, around 9 a.m. on Friday. Unable to find a customer service number for Facebook, Miller called station managers and asked them to remove the link, which apparently went to a New Zealand site/Tom Sowa, SR. More here.
Question: Was KPBX helped or hurt by the porn site hack job?
