There is a petition being circulated that asks Facebook to take down a page that has offensive language relating to the Sandy Hook shooting. So far, however, Facebook has not done so.
The First Amendment right to free speech is so often touted now that the true meaning has got lost somewhere in the translation. Simply put, it prohibits congress or the government from restricting free speech. However, it does not prevent an organization like Patch, or Facebook, from making rules of what it will or won’t allow to be “spoken” on it’s airwaves.

People now have Facebook pages for their dogs? Is that too much?
When Facebook first crept onto the scene in 2004, it slowly earned 1 million users, but that grew incredibly in the eight years that followed. According to a story in Yahoo Finance this week, it now has 955 million users in any given month, an increase of 29 percent more than just a year ago. But recently a new trend has emerged that, considering the number of pet owners worldwide, could increase that number exponentially. Facebook users have begun setting up Facebook pages, just for their dogs. Tell us what you think about this, a naturally progression or has Facebook finally gone to the dogs? Are you ready to have Fido's daily activities coming through your Facebook feed?
