Sarah Palin:Facebook Post Deleted, Apology Ensues

Sarah Palin on Facebook is something that America is growing used to. Palin's social networking accounts (Facebook AND Twitter) have been the cause of much ridicule for the former VP hopeful. When she's not inventing words or coming up with zany things to say, she still makes headlines. This time, Facebook deleted one of her posts and then subsequently apologized.

The post in question had to do with the building of a mosque on Ground Zero. We all know that there is a controversy over whether or not an Islamic worship center should be built so close to where the 9/11 attacks took place. The post can be found here, as it has been re-instated by the social networking site.

The first thing that you might think is that the post had something in it that violated FaceBook terms of service. That is not the case. After it became known to the site that the message disappeared, an apology ensued and the post was re-instated.

What do you think - was this some sort of glitch, or was this a calculated move on the part of someone at the site?
