I have just received a Facebook notification from the Northern Ireland Policing Board asking me not to be offended that they no longer want to be my friend. Nothing like un-friending somebody and telling them you are doing so as well!
Though all is not lost, as they still have a Facebook Page that I can ‘like’.
Hmmmmm How can I ‘like’ you if you don’t want to be my friend? ;)
On a more serious note, the Board seems to have taken the decision to work with the terms and conditions of Facebook and decided to delete their profile. It is a tricky one but the general thought on the terms is that profiles are for personal use only and pages are for businesses, organisations, campaigns, etc. There is a lot of 'grey' in this area due to the focus of a business and how people actually interact. Mind you i do seem to be friends with a few hotels, restaurants and pubs but have not seen any banter from them lately.
Do you have a view on the Profile / Page debate?
