Worst Company In America Sweet 16: USPS Vs. Facebook

The old world clashes with the new this afternoon as the company that used to connect people around the country tries to take down the website that everyone now uses to show off photos of their kids.

Facebook made a strong showing in its first-round trouncing of Sprint. In a case of the snake eating its own tail, a lot of the people that voted in that particular contest actually came in through links on Facebook.

Meanwhile, the USPS survived one of Round One’s closest clashes, winning by a slender margin over fellow package-misplacer UPS.

So which angers you more: A seemingly omnipresent site that desperately wants to invade your privacy or a once-great institution that desperately wants to do anything but deliver your mail?

(Voting on this poll will close at 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 22.)
