facebook censors website critical of it

Openbook is a website that lets you search public status messages on Facebook. Try searching for “hate my boss” or “playing hooky” for interesting results. Or, as Twitter posts keep mentioning today, search for “mosk” to see how many people who hate muslims don’t know how to spell mosque.

I tried to send someone a message on Facebook including a link to Openbook, and was surprised when I couldn’t.

Then I tried to post a link to Openbook to my profile. Nope.

Of course I let Facebook know that I think this is an error. Because come ON – censoring a website so obviously critical of them? Not impressive.
