Is Facebook Assisting the Sarkozy Campaign?

Frédéric Martel presents evidence that it is. The Elysée denies the allegations.

the evidence is frankly circumstantial at the very best. this is shoddy journalism based on thin reporting, and a proces d'intention based upon a notion of guilt by association.

perhaps facebook did extend its services to mr. sarkozy - who, at the present moment as in late 2011, is the president of france, and not yet an "official" candidate for reelection.

giving preferential treatment to hollande - assuming preferential treatment was given - would have been a different matter, insofar as, in late 2011, his most prominent role was that of candidate (and not that of depute de la correze).

by no means do i suggest that "l'express roule pour hollande" (pour reprendre l'expression employee par le magazine), but this sloppy report is essentially a bunch of hand-waving without much in the way of proof.
