How public or how private is information posted on Facebook? Its depends on context – is it an attorney attempting to collect evidence against a plaintiff or is it a journalist trying to publicize private Facebook information? And where is it?
In Denmark a press council ruled that media isn’t allow to “quote” someone from a private Facebook profile. They did, however, provide a gaping exception for “general interest.” I guess if Michael Jackson died again, Danish journalists could grab quotes from Jackson fans from their private Facebook wall? More to come, I’m sure.
