Facebook Exec Accidentally Leaks Secret Info
September 22, 2011 10:57 AM
There were a lot of laughs to be had on Twitter last night.
First and foremost, self-proclaimed "Internet sales and marketing professional"
saw his online reputation hit the skids when one of this Twitter ghostwriters -- yes, those exist outside of politics, apparently -- went rogue and launched a drunken screed on his profile. As of this writing, it's still live.
The other source of inadvertent comedy comes from Facebook creative director
who accidentally leaked key information about an upcoming feature.
Hours before Facebook Music becomes subject of the main stage at the
f8 developer conference
, Lee spoke of one of the features that the app will soon bring. In a Twitter post, Lee wrote, "The 'Listen with your friend' feature in ticker is blowing my mind. Listen to what your friends are listening. LIVE."
Apparently, either Lee or the company thought better of letting the cat out of the bag, and the post has since been deleted. However, Twitter user
snag a screenshot
before it was taken down.
So, along with listening to music and scrobbling tracks, users will be able to stream tracks to their Facebook friends. Sorta like
without the, um, fun.
Nevertheless, a nifty app to share music with buddies ought to take some of the sting out of the much-maligned layout overhaul.
