California, Jul 18: Somebody's loss is another one's gain! This idiom is truly happening in social networking market. With the arrival of Google+, it seems like Facebook is having a serious competitor after its unchallenged race of more than six years. And what's more, the fight between the two giants a becoming more personal day by day.

But, there is one guy who gained from the war between Facebook and Google. It's Michael Lee Johnson, the web developer whose ad was banned from Facebook. With the controversial ad, Johnson became the centre of attention over the web and he bagged more than 1000 followers after the ban.

Johnson made an ad on Facebook asking people to add him to their Circles on Google+. But, Facebook banned the ad saying that it violated Facebook's "Terms of Use or Advertising guidelines."

Facebook's message to Johnson reads, "Your account has been disabled. All of your adverts have been stopped and should not be run again on the site under any circumstances. Generally, we disable an account if too many of its adverts violate our Terms of Use or Advertising guidelines. Unfortunately we cannot provide you with the specific violations that have been deemed abusive. Please review our Terms of Use and Advertising guidelines if you have any further questions."

Johnson posted his experience in his Google+ account and it got more than 412 comments, 1000 shares and more than 1166 users had hit +1 on it.

Meanwhile Facebook in its' guidelines described that it "may refuse ads at any time for any reason, including our determination that they promote competing products or services or negatively affect our business or relationship with our users."

Later, Johnson said in his Google+ account that the he had deleted his Facebook account and now he is getting more time to use Google+. Surely, One man's loss is another man's gain!
