No Facebook Marketing for Facebook Movie

“Facebook’s advertising guidelines don’t allow ads to reference the company unless Facebook has cooperated with the object of the ad,” Steve Elzer, Sony’s senior vice president of Media Relations, explained to All Things Digital. “So, we won’t be advertising there given these parameters.”

Twitter users, though, will probably not be able to avoid the studio’s marketing campaign. Sony has already paid to have its film mentioned as a sponsored trending topic.
