CNNFB_2.24.bmpCNN has purchased prime real estate on Facebook to promote today’s partnership with the 175-million strong social networking site.

As of 12:45pmET today, more than a quarter million people say they are attending the CNN.com Event which allows Facebook users to update their status, see photos and videos of CNN.com Live’s programming and add postings to the wall, which are pretty interesting right now.

For example:

Ben: I want to watch it, I really do. But, somehow I suspect that doing so will be too aggravating.

Andrew: CLINTON CAUSED THE HOUSING MARKET MESS NOT BUSH!!!!

Maria: I want to know why CNN didn’t include the Republican’s response from Gov. Bobby Jindal on their list of important coverage?
