The Ferrari Fan Page Dispute Continues; Both The Carmaker and Facebook are in trouble

News sources have revealed that the Swiss Father and his son, Olivier and Sammy Wasem had originally created the Ferrari Fan Page weighing a lot more than the original one that the Italian car manufacturer created for their company. The conflict gets more critical when back in 2012 Facebook with greater inclination towards the Italian automobile brand revoked Olivier and Sammy Wasem’s access to the more successful Ferrari fan page and abruptly assigned an official Ferrari administration access to it without any notice to the real owners breaching their own set of rules and policies for Fan Pages.

It has been also identified that Ferrari had been in great negotiations with Olivier and Sammy Wasem offering them to develop a mutual sense of ownership and administration to the Facebook Page but the real owners have actually sued both Facebook and Ferrari that will cost these big names with a $174 to $1000 per follower when it comes to calculating the advertising revenue for each of the fan engaged with the page. From the biggest automobile market segments up to the best car hire services providers in the UAE, everyone is still curious to know what going to be a definitive settlement in this regard.
