The big difference in modus-operandi are, that, Facebook is a social networking website that is operated and privately owned by Facebook Inc; whereas Google is a search engine for any information. On prima-facie, there shouldn’t be any competition, as the businesses are different. But, it’s definitely not the case.
According to a report, Facebook used a PR Firm to deliberately daub Google’s image on the ground of privacy issues. This news has raised many eyebrows. The competition in the social space, between the two behemoths have taken a new turn. Dan Lyon of the The Daily Beast informed that Facebook hired a public relation firm named Burson-Marsteller to smudge Google’s face. According to Lyon, it seemed that someone had hired Burson-Marsteller, a top PR firm, to promote anti — Google stories. However, this has come as a surprise to many as Facebook has faced criticism from various sects for not being providing enough privacy and security to its members.
