I read in the Time or the Economist… I need to dig out the reference as I have hard-copy subscriptions… anyhow it was a few months ago of how lawyers are using social networking sites like Facebook in divorce cases, especifically when it comes to custody of children. Claims of a pristine life are not well supported if there are pictures of you partying on Facebook. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that a demand for Facebook suicide is growing.
In fact I find it rather annoying that it is only possible to deactivate your profile. Why not a delete function, what have Facebook got to lose?
