Facebook faced some troubles after the company refused to remove a fake page claiming to be the Aussie ambassador to the European Union. Ex-Aussie Liberal leader Brendan Nelson is furious after Facebook refused to remove the page that claimed to be written by him.
Facebook page attacked Aussie Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Kevin Rudd. Although Nelson thought it was quite lame, he was still worried, because he knew people interacting with the fake account believed it was really him.
Brendan Nelson wrote to Facebook in the United States specifically drawing the account to their attention and asking to take it down. Taking into consideration that he was ambassador to Belgium, Luxembourg, NATO and the European Union, he was concerned about the potential for the page to cause damage to the reputation of Australia.
However, it turned out that even in his position of relative official seniority, Nelson couldn’t do anything about it. Actually, Facebook didn’t even respond to the request. Nelson admitted that the social network was frankly the least responsive entity he had ever dealt with. The experts point out that coming from a person who has dealt with Aussie government officials before this is quite a bold claim.
Brendan Nelson forced the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and intelligence security agencies to take a look at his problem, but they couldn’t do anything about it either. It seems that the only way to get Facebook’s attention is to declare war on the former colony. Although a touch drastic, no Aussie can ever let a diplomatic slur pass it by.

|only idiots use facebook.|
the best thing to do is to never sign up for it and never have anything to do with it.
i never have and never will use that garbage site, and nobody really cares what your status is or what you like...
|Yeah thats whae people think of you fusselteir for being the only person Not to have used facebook|

|ive heard to many people fighting and rowing over facebook to have an account myself so theres 2 people without facebook for you.my life don't runaround rubbish like that im afraid.|
ive got a couple of friends I see now and again but not as often as I used to in past because everytime I saw them from the moment they opened the door it was facebook this n that.
rather than chat or make a coffee,and there the same when out.
our other mutual friends feel the same way too about them.
all I can say is what a shame people have evolved to rely upon facebook in the way they have, there missing out on so much of there lives.
oh and there in there 40S LIKE MYSELF TOO.
ITS A SORRY WORLD WHEN PEOPLE ARE LIKE THAT IM AFRAID TO SAY.
SORRY ABOUT CAPS KEYBOARDS ON BLINK.

|make me the third of many more.|
facebook is for tools like kevibhoy67...
|Imagine a government database of everyone kicked into overdrive, where people just willingly sign up, put there face on it, and update it regularly. We do it better then the gov can much better indeed. It's just a government book of faces, trackable traceable faces, get a life and get some sense (unless you're making money off facebook, that's OK).|
|Julia Gillard does not speak for me..... What a waste of space and oxygen..|
|WITH EVERYTHING THAT'S HAPPENING, I BELIEVE THERE'S NO WAY THAT SOMETHING AS BIG AS FACEBOOK WOULDN'T HAVE AN ALTERIOR MOTIVE. FACEBOOK IS NOT THAT BAD AN IDEA THERE PROBLEM STARTS WHEN YOU FIND OUT THAT IT IS RUN BY AN INTERNATIONAL MAFIA WHO SEE FACEBOOK AS A CHESS BOARD AND THE PEOPLE ON IT AS PAWNS. FOR ME IT'S A CASE OF HOW MUCH YOU VALUE YOUR PRIVACY IN THESE DANGEROUS TIMES. FACEBOOK IS ALSO AN EFFICIENT WAY OF DUMBING DOWN THE POPULATION SINCE WHEN DID COMMUNICATING IN SUCH FRIVOLOUS ACRONYMS BECOME JAMES BOND COOL. ON THE REAL THOUGH WE AS A PEOPLE WILL EVOLVE FOR THE BETTER THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THAT IS THERE WILL ALWAYS BE AN OVERLAP BETWEEN THE BLIND, THE ONE-EYED AND THE SEEING AS THERE ARE MANY OTHER FACTORS THAT WILL INTERFERE WILL THAT EVOLUTION. IRONICALLY INSTEAD OF BEING ON FACEBOOK WE SHOULD BE FACING BOOKS.|
PEACE IN PEACE OUT!!!!!!

|Add another one to the list who never have and never will have a Facebook account. How something can be deemed to be worth billions and actually add nothing of value is beyond me. Unfortunately people have put them and Google into such positions of power that they are now dictating how the internet evolves. And its not for the good.|
|Me as well. Mine dislike of facebook sstarted when I had to scrub my cuz's pc from facebook it had 623 different viruses n trojans. So that left me wonderin how secure it really was .Then listening to my extended family who r in law enforcement..they heavily rely on facebook for all ur data...from ur isp to friends relatives..hangouts...to what ur downloadin in ur pc. NO THANKS!! Big brother intrudes in our lives enough without giving them anymore ammo!|

|Facebook what is there to say, nobody with 2 brain cells has a Facebook account. I rather have my 5 real friends than the 5000 I never met. For all Facebook fans there is only one thing to say. open the door and step outside there is a real world out there. Maybe Facebook is the only place where you can pretend not to be a nerd.|
|This is outrageous! I demand this be taken down at once! hehe|
|Reading through these comments.. haha so paranoid... you think the governments going to track you down through your facebook accounts.. hahaha... they could track you through this site for all the, "potentially illegal activity you've been up to." unless you truly know what your doing.. assumption is that most dont. Myself included haha. Also that 13th comment was hilarious!|

|LOL! I am with you on this Brendan_Nelson : p|
|I think Facebook has a lot of potential, in the world where my best friends are spread throughout the city, the country or stay abroad. A forum where people can catch up, thats called a community.|
I dont add or accept everyone i meet. I dont even post an update on a monthly basis. These tools can be used to your advantage. If you lot are so paranoid why do you register for this site??
Lots of people who do not use FB or Twit seem to think that you are forced to update your status, that somehow your friends will all be posting what they had for dinner, or that they had a shite. To this I reply if your friends post that nonsense why are they your freinds, Is the conversation in person any better?
|Well Juliar Gillard and her cronies should be attacked for there lies,incompetence and destruction of the Australian economy, worse divisive government Ever!!!! bring on the election so we can finally remove this useless party. 5yrs and 250 billion in debt we cant afford another 3 yrs!|
|Okay Skidies, calm down already. This news article is about some power freak thinking he can make things happen. Sadly for him in the world wide web he has no control and it must drive him mad, hehe. I created this username/email to prove a point... It only takes a minute to fake an online identity and apparently Brendan's friends were to stupid to realize it. My pic was copied from the one in the post above. As always... have a nice day||
