While we were all drooling over Kate's dress, and cooing over the Royals (deny it all you want, but you were) farcebook were busying themselves deleting the pages of political organisations. And did I mention that these were UK anti cuts groups, not Chinese democracy campaigners? Another reason to be suspicious of the motives of facebook.
evil overlord spokesperson claimed,
"the pages were disabled as part of a routine sweep because they were created with fake personal profiles, a violation of the company’s term of service.
Ah, come on! Facebook regularly tells me that the pages I have liked are my "friends", so for them to complain a group is using a profile instead of a page is a tiny bit hypocritical. Also, how is it that the only groups that have been affected are groups that are protesting the painful cuts the government is making to the arts and university funding? Come on, facebook, what is this really about?
