Facebook is getting pharmaceutical companies to allow pill talk. The AZ Daily Star reports, that pharmaceutical firms were given a rare exception on Facebook, that they don't need to have a wall. To their advantage of course, in case anyone talks about their product in negative light.

That information could qualify as an AER, and it must then be filed with the Food and Drug Administration, which uses the reports to monitor product safety.
Now, they're being forced by Facebook to open up, and talking about it of course, is cause for concern. Though, Facebook pages don't just allow helpful discussion, but could act as a check against the less than exhaustive FDA testing. Which is a good thing:
