Facebook junkies without iPhones may be experiencing a "status update fail" now that Apple has added the infamous Facebook to its list of banned websites at some retail locations nationwide. The ban on Facebook squatters has been in affect for about a week according to one Apple store genius. Macheads from Seattle, Austin and Thousand Oaks, CA confirmed the horror to be true from stores visited in those cities.
“Apple Stores have become a regular Internet Cafe, so placing the most popular time-killer [Facebook] of them all on the banned-list will certainly help everyone get a chance to test out the computers”. An Apple store Genius told Tinycomb.com
Roughly 16 million Apple store visitors per month could be "Face-blocked", unable to update their status from Apple base camps. Apple operates 251 stores worldwide, with an average of 15,744 visitors per store, per week. Customer access to MySpace was banned from all Apple stores back in May of 2007. Twit Alert! Twitter may be added next to Apple's supposed black list.
UPDATED: A report on CNET is claiming; "So, what it looks like is that even if there is no nationwide ban of Facebook at Apple stores as some had speculated, a few individual stores have chosen to go their own route."
