Another reason to get off Facebook

The First Post:

Apart from the street corner, where, asked Greater Manchester Police, can we reach the idle youth? The answer, apparently, is Facebook.

On the face of it, GMP Updates is a Crimewatch-style news feed, an up-to-the-minute bulletin board of unsolved crimes (‘Man injured after gunshot fired, Rochdale’). There’s also a ‘Submit Intelligence’ button, so users can anonymously upload information, tips, even photographs.

But. There’s always a ‘but’.

The problem is that, when dealing with Facebook, nothing whatsoever is ever anonymous.
