The reason was because I thought that my friends must have recommended those people to me, therefore they should be eligible to be my friends.
Several months ago, all that has changed, in the sense that although our friends recommended us to add certain people to our friends, Facebook will only allow us to do so if we know that person.
In this regards, I would like to share with you a story about a woman who sued Facebook in U.S Court because she was banned by Facebook. Please find below the story written by Bruce Carton on Legal Blog Watch. Happy reading.
As I wrote here, I admittedly have a weakness for stories where a corporation rolls out its ultimate "death penalty" punishment on a customer: "You can never come here [buy here] [eat here] again!!"
So you can imagine my keen interest in the story of Karen Young, who was banned by Facebook from, um, Facebooking, and did not take kindly to that ban. In an e-mail, Facebook said it had banned Young for the following transgressions:
- Sending friend requests to people you don’t know
- Regularly contacting strangers through unsolicited Inbox messages
- Soliciting others for dating or business purposes
