Facebook Users Vent About U.S. Monetary Policy

We're seeing posts about the U.S. economy going up on Facebook about once every other second.

While Facebookers worldwide are lamenting the riots in London, users in the U.S. have been venting about the economy via status updates — we’re seeing these posts go up about once every other second.

The flurry started going up just before the U.S. Federal Reserve Open Market Committee announcement at 2:15 pm Eastern Standard Time today that interest rates would remain at a historic low for the next two years.

Apparently, that’s not good enough, as Facebookers are watching the stock market take a nose dive following the Fed announcement.

Readers, what are your friends posting on Facebook about U.S. monetary policy?
