Edinburgh Law Librarian and Blogger, JennieLaw is complaining about a new facebook application which encourages people to gossip anonymously about their friends. Quite correctly, she suggests that the potential for defamatory comments being made in this way could be storing up trouble.
Read the post in full, it’s called Gossipy Facebook.
Quite apart from possible legal action, remember also that whatever facebook says, the goodbook says “A perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends.” Proverbs 16:28 (NIV). So just don’t.
