Jim, actually rogue editing could be very helpful for technical documents, which need constant update and extension.

"The lawsuit alleges that the Facebook ads "used Facebook members’ names and likenesses to sell products without their consent." (Case in point: Facebook used one member's name and face, without his knowledge, to promote a 55-gallon tube of personal lubricant) Under the terms of the settlement, any current or former Facebook users who had their identities shown in a Sponsored Story ad -- name, nickname, profile picture, photo, etc. -- could be entitled to a check from Facebook."

lyndonwong's comment:
Lawsuit involving Facebook Sponsored stories. Implications: "The majority of Facebook's U.S. users could get paid: the social network estimated in August of last year that around 125 million users in the United States are eligible for a payout, or nearly three quarters of Facebook members in the U.S. (SocialBakers, a social media analytics company, estimates that Facebook now has over 168 million Facebook users in the U.S.)."

lyndonwong's comment:
Risks of company culture: "We have a culture that encourages employees to quickly develop and launch new and innovative products. As our business grows and becomes more complex, our cultural emphasis on moving quickly may result in unintended outcomes or decisions that are poorly received by users, developers, or advertisers. Our culture also prioritizes our user engagement over short-term financial results, and we frequently make product decisions that may reduce our short-term revenue or profitability if we believe that the decisions are consistent with our mission and benefit the aggregate user experience and will thereby improve our financial performance over the long term. These decisions may not produce the long-term benefits that we expect, in which case our user growth and engagement, our relationships with developers and advertisers, and our business and results of operations could be harmed."

Did everyone in America get an email about this?
"Growth in the average price per ad for the third quarter and the first nine months of 2012 compared to the same periods in 2011 was driven primarily by an increase in price per ad in the United States, which benefited from growth in Sponsored Stories in News Feed across desktop and mobile devices during the second and third quarters of 2012. Sponsored Stories in News Feed have a significantly higher average price per ad due to factors which include the prominent position of the Sponsored Stories."

Highlights role of "Sponsored Story" ad unit in raising overall CPMs. Interestingly, found no mention of FBX.

NewAlbrecht's comment:
So lyndon, you can already see the product problem: one doesn't really want to use this as a public editing tool, but rather, just as a way to comment. In which case, it's no better than twitter except that you can include a citation, and in that you can see the comments in context on the original site. But that only works if you have a very large audience.

"Marketing function nirvana, certainly when it comes to integrating digital into the organisation properly, is achieved when the function excels at digital but where there is no-one left in the organisation with ‘digital’, ‘e’, ‘online’, ‘internet’, ‘new media’, ‘interactive’ in their job title." - Econsultancy

lyndonwong's query:
BTW, Jim, what does the 'query' button do?
2013-01-26 05:37:00
NewAlbrecht's comment:
Idea was that in copy editing you sometimes write a "query" to the author or the main editor in which you ask for a clarification or a change.
