Facebook's new Fortune 500 Advertiser...

Googfb While the blogosphere buzzes about Facebook's banning of Google Friend Connect, it appears that Google is not entirely a "persona non grata" at Facebook.  It seems that Google, the Internet advertising superpower, is actually purchasing advertising on Facebook's Ad Platform.  As you can see from this ad (right) from Facebook, Google is seeking candidates for their User Experience Research.
