The Facebook - Micheal Phelps Relationship

The Baltimore native swimmer Micheal Phelps along with NBC, has been giving a lot of mentions lately after his historic 8 gold winnings. I think one of the first questions Bob Costas asked Phelps was something after mentioning how he has surpassed Obama, among other huge brands/names on facebook. Then in another interview Micheal Phelps brought up how he's receiving friend request from former schoolmates that disrespected him then and what not. So now I guess facebook is returning the favor by making an announcement box on top of everybody's newsfeed congratulating Phelps (and a ll the U.S athletes).
