I know Facebook a big deal and all, but this is ridiculous

    In what is otherwise a pretty cut-and-dry story about a search warrant service in Clearwater, the paper included in the second graf about how many people liked the story on the PD's Facebook.


    Moving aside from the fact that this should not have been in the nut graf, is this really important enough to note, ever? Do you care that nine people liked the story? Maybe you say so to point out the irony of people liking the story, but I think that's where I draw the line.

    Sorry if this is a d_b

    It's right up there with SportsCenter's obsession with Twitter :(
