Hi, Camila.

Sorry about the delay in replying (and authorising your post).

The verdict is indeed that they are relating non-tagging brand names to its official fan pages. Their argument is that they are providing relevant content to users and that brands don\'t own their brand presences on Facebook; they just get some say in them.

Hiya, Bliss. The nearest they\'ve got to clearcut documentation is here: https://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=24135836928300...

I met up with the Facebook guys yesterday, and will post an update now.

It\'s very hard to test, because the passing-mention stuff doesn\'t seem to come through in real time. Posts by friends on the timeline come through in real time, and they can be moderated. But I suspect that these search-result mentions aren\'t covered under that moderation. Waiting to hear back from FB about it now.

Hmm, yeah, I see what you\'re talking about. The box I\'m seeing with these comments isn\'t in the \"Recent Posts by Others\" box, though. It seems to be a separate one of mentions, rather than of posts on the wall.

Will have to do a bit of testing to see if turning off \"Recent Posts by Others\" also deactivates that box.

Will edit the post to reflect your point!

I prefer to think of it as an investment.

Cheers, Lee. Not missing Nîmes. In fact, that\'s where I am right now. Will have to gather some photos of the amphitheatre before I post about it, I think.

Yeah, it was certainly an experience. We\'re going to take it easy for a few days now, I think.

You\'re right about the beggars. I had a guy in Bordeaux follow me up the street tapping on my shoulder and asking me for money. Foolishly said that I only have plastic, which usually works in New Zealand. The guy was bold: \"Oh, that\'s fine, that\'s fine. Come to this patisserie and buy me a chocolate eclair.\"

Yeah, I\'ve come to travel a bit late in life, mainly due to being terrible with money in the past.

Regarding public transport, this may make you feel a bit better. Yesterday we tried to buy some tickets through the automated system and it froze for a bit, then buzzed, went blank, then rebooted and we were left with a Windows start-up screen staring at us.

That\'s a good point, regarding the cost-per-click against how many of them realise they\'re in the wrong place and bounce. Cheers for the feedback.

What happens when someone\'s brand name is a pretty generic keyword(s)?

Oh, I can\'t remember. It was more of a chat where he seemed legit.
