Facebook hashes it out with a brand in public

All is fair in love and marketing. Including airing your grievances on your very public Facebook page.

That's exactly what Web-based food delivery startup Eat 24 did recently, bringing its beef with Facebook (so to speak) out in the open in a scathing blog post.

The problem? Eat 24 is upset that the posts it makes to its Page aren't getting the same reach with Facebook users that they did in the past.

"When we first met, you made us feel special. We'd tell you a super funny joke about Sriracha and you'd tell all our friends and then everyone would laugh together," Eat 24 said, in a mock "Dear John" letter format. "But now? Now you want us to give you money if we want to talk to our friends."
