Interesting story on Fox News. al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, or someone posing as him, was using the social-networking site as a platform to show videos and speeches to Islamic militants, until Facebook shut him down, that is.
His address was given as “the mountains of the world.”
On Thursday, a security expert urged Facebook’s U.S. owners to shut down the profile page, named “The leader of the Mujahideen, Osama bin Laden.” The profile became active on March 25 and had already attracted nearly 1,000 extremists. Access was via the Taliba’s own Facebook presence, according to U.K. publication The Sun.
Although the language used is Arabic, messages in English were beginning to appear, the Sun reported.
“Bin Laden, via his supporters, is clearly taunting his pursuers,” Internet terror expert and author Neil Doyle said.
