I, of course, am absolutely ignorant about US or certain of US State's laws. However, someone has created mine false fb and twitter accounts (have no idea, why). Posted pictures, tweets, other rubish. I did not make a big fuss, just out of curiosity - I'm a lawyer - investigated, what could I do about it. Appearantly, nothing. For social sites are treated by law not as "public media". (Due to same reasoning, you may swear in your entries, etc. - which is a good thing, from my point of view.)
Someone even has created and is actively using a false twitter account of a rather famous person in UK - Ian Hislop. And he could not get it deleted without a court case - which he did not initiate.
Oh, I am too nerdy, whatever. The point is... I forgot, sorry.
@codesan: Why would you ask a question, and then answer it yourself, in the next breath? Do you have an alter ego with excellent intuition?
Now Carol, on the other hand, has no doubt begun to collect photos that pudgy men have taken of their lower extremities, as well as the twitter addresses of good-looking employees who have friends at law firms . . . .
