Yoink! Facebook gets Google employee to defect

Facebook Inc. has raided Google Inc. to hire a new chief operating officer, providing the popular online social network with more seasoned management and advertising savvy as it strives to make more money without alienating its audience.Sheryl Sandberg’s defection from Google, announced Tuesday, represents a coup for Facebook just three months after it suffered a humiliating setback in its effort to inject more commercialism into its fun-loving Web site.

As Google’s vice-president of global online sales and operations for the past six years, Sandberg helped build the Internet search leader into one of the world’s most prized companies. She also helped set up Google.org, the Mountain View-based company’s philanthropic arm.

Before joining Google, she served as the U.S. Treasury Department’s chief of staff during the Clinton administration. (link)
