    Default Facebook targeting its competitors

    Admittedly I didn't read the whole story but the headline confuses me! It says facebook targeted their competitors. Isn't that what businesses are supposed to do? Target their competitors?!

    You do need to read the whole story. It appears that the real story starts when the Six4Three arc is introduced. The jaded pessimist inside of me thinks that this is more about the crawling app, created by Six4Three, designed to, and I quote
    which had an app that allowed users to search for pictures of their friends in swimsuits

    If you read it, the Facebook competitor, Vine, actually makes your point even though they were on the receiving end of Facebook's tactics.

    "Competition sucks, right? No. It allows for products to improve, become available to more people, at lower costs. Strive to build new things that people want and influence other creators for the cycle to continue." - Vine co-founder Rus Yusupov
