Facebook face off

By Libby

Via Avedon, I see Jon Swift was in a tiff with Facebook. His page was abruptly cancelled with no prior warning for violating their no pseudonym policy and they were rather snippy with him when he inquired why he was singled out when there are over 300 Jesus Christ pages and a fair sample of Santa Claus and Easter Bunnies.

Save your outrage though. Jon's Facebook friends leapt into the fray and his page has been restored but he wonders how they determined he wasn't using his real name in the first place. Apparently there are also many other Jon Swifts in the profiles. You have to wonder if the recreational spying the employees engage in, in violation of their own policy, had anything to do with it.
