Whats this Facebook debate?

February 18, 2009

Facebook is in news for al the contentious topics, lots of tweets and updates on Online Privacy and social media. So thought of following up some.

Who is responsible for what is published on Facebook?

Victorian Police suppressed the details of Arsonist during Australian Bushfire, however vigilantes published his details on a facebook group ( Sydney Morning article). This kicked the debate that like other media Facebook  is responsible for what is published on the site. THey say Publishing the details on facebook and the comments by people will affect the process of  fair trial as jury might be prejudiced by reading the things on facebook. Then there is this intersting debate aired today on Sunrise Infocus with David Galbally and Laurel Papworth (@silkcharm) discussing ‘Online Privacy’ within Australia –

Are these related events?

Interestingly few weeks back Facebook has changed the Term of services to claim “perpetual worldwide license” to anything posted on the facebook. Today they changed it back to the pervious terms of services (Link).

I am not too sure if there is any relation between these two events, but it has definitely triggered the debate which will worth following in coming days. They say world wide web is self regulatory, lets see where these debates go.

I wikied for Vigilantes, it is good read on the topic (LINK).
