Britain’s Justice Minister says Facebook has deleted the pages of 30 UK prisoners after they used the Internet to taunt their victims.
The move follows several incidents in which British criminals have reportedly used the social networking site to communicate with conspirators and act against victims.
Outrage over inmates’ online activities prompted Straw to contact Facebook, he told the BBC.
In an interview posted online on Thursday, Mr. Straw said he hoped Facebook would soon “press the delete button” whenever the government asked to have an offending profile removed.
