Target gets in trouble on Facebook

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported in its business section on December 1 that Target had told students supporting them on the social networking site Facebook to keep their association with the company a secret.

The group is called the "Target Rounders." Its members receive discounts and other prizes for marketing Target to their friends on Facebook and giving feedback to Target.

After a member of the group, 21-year-old Rosie Siman, a senior at the University of Georgia, raised her concerns on the Rounders' Facebook group, any mention of keeping the promotion a secret was removed.
