Nicola's support for X Factor's Frankie Cocozza led to a horrid hate-campaign against her - detailed here [with photographs and screen grabs] by the Daily Mail, which reports "the High Court ruling sent a message to the cyber bullies that their anonymity can be stripped away, leaving them open to prosecution... Last week the High Court granted an order compelling the site (facebook)to disclose the bullies’ names, email addresses and their computers’ internet protocol (IP) addresses, which can be used to determine a computer’s location."
In your Zuckerface!
I like one of the comments left on the Daily Mail site by a reader in Cheshire: "The answer's simple - don't use Facebook! It never fails to amaze me how many people are willing to share personal details with every Tom, Dick, pervert & criminal in the world & then wonder why this happens." SOUND ADVICE!
MORE BAD NEWS FOR FACEBOOK ::: Facebook‘s days of torrid growth in the U.S. appear to be behind it, according to one researcher.
ComScore reports that Facebook U.S. audience grew 5% in April, to 158 million. That was down from a 24% jump in April 2011 and a 89% growth in 2010.
