Facebook has been in some cases over-zealous when it comes to government search and law enforcement requests, it seems. Instead of taking action like Twitter to at least inform its users of a subpoena, Facebook often gives away data without a second thought, or even challenging the request.
A paper by J. P. Semitsu (31:1, 2011) says that under existing laws like the USA PATRIOT Act, there is no federal statutory or constitutional right that prevents law enforcement or government from issuing requests or subpoenas; amounting to "fishing expeditions".
Who is Paul Ceglia? He was once a convicted fraudster for taking advance payments of wood pellets from a business he owned without coughing up the goods. However, he became embroiled in a lawsuit when he stepped forward claiming he owned a major stake in Facebook.
With news of his past came to light, many dismissed the case. But when he presented written evidence showing a contract between Ceglia and Zuckerberg, the case took a turn for the worst -- at least for the Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
If he does in fact own over 80% of the company, he could depose Zuckerberg as CEO and find himself in a serious lawsuit. Whether this would have a knock-on effect to users of the site, we can only speculate.
Breastfeeding is a perfectly normal, natural connection between a baby and its mother. Facebook, however, objected to the uploading of images of breastfeeding in 2010, citing reasons that an exposed breast violates the code of decency on the site.
Users of Facebook responded by petitioning Facebook by claiming that breastfeeding is "not obscene", with over a quarter of a million users agreeing.
