Facebook: David Cameron's Shutdown Threat Won't Happen

By Gary Cutlack on at

David Cameron's weird boast about possibly shutting down social networks during times of national stress simply won't happen, says Facebook.

Facbook's European VP Joanna Shields said "I don’t think that’s ever going to happen" at WIRED UK's recent conference, reassuring would-be rioters that messages like "Let's kick in the local Poundstretcher" will always be postable, even if World War III kicks off.

Although if you do use Facebook to plan your Saturday night trouble, you are "probably going to get caught" anyway, according to the Facebook lady. She'll grass you up personally. [Telegraph]
