A father of a female TV presenter had lodged a complaint with the Children and Women’s Bureau alleging that his daughter’s Facebook profile had been copied and distortedly published on another website causing damage to her reputation.
The distorted profile reportedly includ her phone number and other defamatory information.
Submitting a report in Court, the Children and Women’s Bureau sought a Court order to take action against the suspect by obtaining a report from the Police Computer Division. The Magistrate however maintained that police should record a statement from the aggrieved TV presenter prior to conducting further investigations. (LS)
Don't think these people can match the team of lawyers fb must have.

steven Friday, 15 October 2010 04:55 PM
idiots that dont protect their facebook account with all the controls they have deserve to get their profiles stolen
steven Friday, 15 October 2010 04:58 PM
Facebook has controls to prevent such intrusions. in other words illiterate people should not get on facebook if they don not know how to use it

You are right Ocracy. Parents should watch out what their belongings do.

Facebook is a harmless social network which can be abused by the user..in this case the foolish daughter. This goes for anything.

Are you serious ? Do you think this is the first time something like this happened ? This is not the fault of FB. For example if someone gets a video of this presenter, and then dubs some other words to the video, then is it the fault of the TV station? All these are criminal activities - and the fault lies with the persons who do this activities, and not with the medium - FB or TV or news paper or whatever.

Facebook has a section for profile settings. And there you can give the privileges to the friends or who ever in your profile with required controls. You can select the access levels such as friends, everyone, friends of friends likewise. If this woman is not knowing about it..now its too late to react i believe. Anyway seems like the effort to become more popular in Social Media has backfired. And also this complain can be another attempt to gain more popularity. Who knows...anyway this is a good lesson for her..

Father has all the rights to complain. It is the duty of the law biding to take action against the culprits. Punish them severely.

WHAT IS DONE SECRETLY BY THE DAUGHTER NOT EVEN THE FATHER OR MOTHER WOULD KNOW. SINCE IT IS NOW PUBLIC THAT THEY HAVE GOT UPSET. THE BLAME LIES SOLELY ON YOUR OWN DAUGHTER, FOR IF SHE WAS DECENT SHE WOULD NOT POST ANYTHING ON FACEBOOK.
DO NOT BLAME OTHERS, FIRST CORRECT YOUR HOUSEHOLD.

If they are illiterate how can they operate an FB account? Are you sitting on your brain?
KD Saturday, 16 October 2010 08:18 AM
No profiles stolen, just copied over to another website. Learn to read before comment.
Prabhath Sunday, 17 October 2010 03:57 AM
This is complain of a another stupid father who does not know anything about this media
KD Saturday, 16 October 2010 08:25 AM

who is this presnter?
boyzoned Friday, 15 October 2010 02:28 PM
the father should thank his stars that only his daughters reputation has been damaged. With daughters like this who have the itch to post their profiles on Facebook, he could soon be facing far worse problems.
Suba Friday, 15 October 2010 02:32 PM
Face Book is a Tool. Like fire, must be used cautiously. There are accepted but unwritten rules for use of Public Sites. Giving out telephone numbers etc is asking for trouble.
Give out personal details and face the consequences.
Why is the father making the complaint, when it is an adult who is affected?
nalla paambu Friday, 15 October 2010 02:32 PM
Nice chance to sue Facebook in a US court. Damages will run into millions.
Jayatillaka Friday, 15 October 2010 02:32 PM
my dear father you cant stop these things and you cant ban the face book. you cant file cases against the whole world
gira Friday, 15 October 2010 02:33 PM
HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, FACE BOOK GONNA BLOCK IN SRI LANKA VERY SOON
Anura Sunday, 17 October 2010 06:38 AM
Can't blame anybody. 1000s and 1000s of settings available in facebook to control privacy
