Facebook gets needy

John Moe Nov 19, 2010

They want you to love only them. Facebook users are being greeted with a little banner thing at the top of the page. It shows pictures of your friends and says “See what’s happening with (names) the moment you open your browser” and then it gives you the option to make Facebook your home page. This is war with Google, which is still the most popular homepage for browsers.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
