Use Facebook at your own risk

In the Czech Republic a TV journalist has got into trouble for making disparaging remarks about a Chinese diplomat on the online social network Facebook. The business paper Hospodářské Noviny points to the social dangers of Facebook: "The debates on Facebook bring to mind the kind of gossip where you complain about your boss in pubs. But in this case the boss is sitting right there at the virtual pub table. … Facebook tempts people to shoot their mouths off; after all, we're all 'friends'. But among those 'friends' are some less good friends, and even enemies. And because you can't control who reads a commentary, you're taking a risk. … People who use Facebook should be aware of that risk and behave accordingly."
