UK – Facebook takes down 30 prisoners' pages after victim taunts: (Guardian)
Thirty Facebook pages have been taken down because prisoners were using them to taunt their victims, Jack Straw, the justice secretary, has revealed. Straw was speaking after a meeting with victims’ campaigners to discuss prisoners using social networking sites to hound families. The minister said the 30 offending pages brought to the attention of Facebook had been removed within 48 hours. He said he was ‘what we have to do is set up a better system with Facebook. ‘So essentially if they get a notice from us that this site is improper then all they have to do is not make a judgment about it, but press the delete button.’
