Facebook agrees: Explicit comments should come free of charge

facebook.jpgThe world’s most popular social networking site says it will adopt new measures to protect users after a woman named Lindsey Abrams of Patriot, Ind., sued over text messages she received with explicit comments and other upsetting content. Like all of us trapped in lifetime cell phone contracts, she had to pay US$0.10 for each nasty note, portions of which went to Facebook. Given Facebook’s recent attack against Canadian-made porn, this seems kind of unfair. We don’t mind if the cute guys behind Facebook talk dirty. They just shouldn’t play dirty.
