Thrown Out Of The FaceParty!
I'm 36! I don't have a Faceparty account but if I did I would be about to be frog marched off their premises for being too old…
Marketing Week reports that government legislation has forced them into a corner because they can't check addresses against Gordon's sex offender list.
But where do they get the 36 year threshold from? Seems a bit arbitrary?
And who does their PR?
"We understand that only a minority of older users are sex offenders, but you must understand that we cannot tell which."
Do you think they'd let me sign up if I said I always get asked for ID in the US?
Seriously though, where does this leave Facebook, Bebo and the rest? I'm sure I've not added my address to either of those….
