Clearly, someone’s excited about Facebook’s upcoming IPO:

A few of us here at The Next Web are wondering if the Facebook flag is flying higher than the US flag, which of course would violate some sort of code. Well, this one to be exact:
United States Code. Title 4, Chapter 1
No other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if on the same level, to the right of the flag of the United States of America, except during church services conducted by naval chaplains at sea, when the church pennant may be flown above the flag during church services for the personnel of the Navy. No person shall display the flag of the United Nations or any other national or international flag equal, above, or in a position of superior prominence or honor to, or in place of, the flag of the United States at any place within the United States or any Territory or possession thereof: Provided, That nothing in this section shall make unlawful the continuance of the practice heretofore followed of displaying the flag of the United Nations in a position of superior prominence or honor, and other national flags in positions of equal prominence or honor, with that of the flag of the United States at the headquarters of the United Nations.
It’s not like we live in the “United States of Facebook”. Or do we?
