Facebook didn’t last more than a few hours on Apple’s new Ping social network system. Why? Miguel Helft in The New York Times:
Facebook blocked Apple from that because Ping had the potential to send so much traffic Facebook’s way and cause “site stability” and “infrastructure” problems
While Ping would integrate nicely with Facebook, it does present the social network giant with additional competition that could far exceed Twitter.
We’re working with Apple to resolve this issue. We’ve worked together successfully in the past, and we look forward to doing so in the future.
Why can’t we all just get along?
