Evidently a few of my friends have found Steve Jobs’ profile and followed him. Apple must have discovered that, because whenever I click on his profile, I get the following popup, saying, “Your Ping Account is Disabled.” Of course my account isn’t disabled because I can still follow other people, but it’s definitely interesting. I can only reproduce this with Steve Jobs himself. This brings up the question, is Apple going to need to do the “real person” and “fake person/brand” thing that Facebook is doing with personal profiles and Pages?
What if Steve Jobs wants to share his music with only his close friends and family, but he wants to maintain a more public demeanor to the world? Will the 2 profile system be allowed? Does Apple need more privacy preferences?
Steve, I understand if you don’t want me following you, but please don’t disable my account!
