Raoul Moat Facebook: Social Networking Nightmare?

It has been reported that the Facebook page dedicated to a UK gunman has finally been removed – not by Facebook themselves, but rather the user who created the group in the first place.

As reported from BBC, the Facebook page titled ‘”RIP Raoul Moat you Legend” had gained about 35,000 supporters, instantly striking controversy across the UK. Even Prime Minister David Cameron got involved over the matter and urged Facebook to remove the group.

However, Facebook later issued a statement saying that it’s users were entitled to their own opinion and that the only way it would be removed, would be by the user who created it.

That turned out to be the case as the page can no longer be found on the social networking site. We trust that you have been following events in the whole story, so let us know your opinions on it.

Did you see the group on Facebook before it was removed?
