A local Facebook user is making a cameo in MTV's "Diary of Facebook," which airs tonight at 11 p.m. Eastern. The episode showcases some Facebook users' stories, one of which is Hollywood, Fla. resident Thomas Ohlson. He's part of a large community on Facebook raising awareness for ALS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. It's a nervous system disease that leads to muscle weakening, twitching and an inability to move arms, legs and body.
But don't expect to see much in regards to behind-the-scenes company secrets. Ad Age's Edmund Lee writes: "At best, MTV's "Diary" is a gloss, a 21-minute company brochure examining a few very narrow nodes of life inside Facebook."
