article imageFacebook removes Google+ advertisement

Google+ now has millions and millions of users and Facebook seems to be concerned about this new social network. Facebook appears to be so worried that they have taken action and decided to not allow any Google+ adverts on their site.
One of the things Facebook has decided to do is to remove Google+ adverts from the site. For example, Michael Johnson is a web developer who wanted more followers on Google’s social networking site. Johnson placed an ad on Facebook trying to get more followers on Google+ but Facebook removed the advert.
Johnson said that his advert called upon people who were lucky enough to have an account on Google+ to go and add him, according to Ibtimes. Facebook is known for not allowing competitors’ products to be used in any of their adverts.
Johnson also had his Facebook account disabled, according to Cnet. His other campaigns were also removed and banned too. Facebook did not exactly say what Johnson did to get his account disabled but they did hint around it. Facebook sent Johnson a message telling him that they usually disable accounts if adverts violate their advertising guidelines.
Some say that Facebook’s decision to not allow Google+ adverts is just cruel, pathetic and even cowardly.
Facebook may very well be concern about Google+ because last week Google reported record quarterly earnings.
