More subpoenas for Facebook

October 3, 2007

It must be a sign of social networking success I reckon, first NY State now New Jersey State Attorney General Anne Milgram said on Tuesday her office has subpoenaed Facebook to discover whether convicted sex offenders in the state have profiles on the popular social networking site.

Milgram issued the subpoena on Monday to Facebook along with letters to 11 other social networking sites asking them to compare member accounts against a list of sex offenders.

Facebook has until October 12 to respond to the subpoena, which asks for all information concerning any user identified as a convicted sex offender.

I’m sure there will be more to come from other states as they all jump aboard the legal bandwagon with the latest hyper-successful social networking darling!
