Facebook Faces Off With YouTube for Commercial Viewers




    The son of Robert F. Kennedy has been charged with harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly clashing with two nurses who tried to stop him from taking his 2-day-old baby boy from a Westchester maternity unit. Douglas Kennedy and his wife called the charges "absurd" and said the nurses were in the wrong. Jonathan Dienst reports.

    Super Bowl Sunday means two things: football and more importantly, commercials. This year Facebook has a page that will allow users to vote on their favorite commercials as soon as they air.

    Facebook's Sports on Facebook Page will have a tab called Facebook Replay, which will become available an hour before kick-off, says Inside Facebook.

    In the past, Google has hosted Super Bowl commercials on YouTube, where viewers could vote on favorites, and will continue to do so this year. Facebook Replay will be in direct competition with the YouTube version.

    Facebook users will be able to vote until Wednesday, February 9 at 6 p.m. PST. On Thursday, Facebook will announce the commercial with the most Likes.
