AMY came home around 11pm after a hard day spent at University. As usual sat in front of the computer, logged into Facebook and headed to Goldsmiths Fights Back Facebook page, in order to find the last news on students' actions against UK's government education cuts. AMY found it surprising that the page didn't appear, no sign of existence. The page had simply vanished. After a few more clicks AMY found out that Goldsmiths Fights Back along with many other UK's political groups have been banned from Facebook, just prior to the Royal Wedding day.

A couple of days ago AMY received a Facebook notice stating that JOE - a Facebook friend - mentioned she live in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Facebook wanted AMY to confirm if such was true. Finding it awkward that AMY has handed such information to Facebook she decided to contact JOE, who replied having never mentioned AMY's living location to Facebook.

AMY, a young mother struggling with her first maternity experience joined the Facebook breastfeeding support group 'The Leaky B@@b'.

A week later AMY receives a message from one of her friends stating that the The Leaky B@@b group no longer existed. The group had been deleted by Facebook under the claim that it had violated its Terms of Service,by publishing obscene breastfeeding photos.

Australian technology blogger AMY found out that Facebook keeps monitoring one's browsing history even when one logs out from the social-network. AMY stated that when one signs up to Facebook it automatically leaves cookies in one's computer to perform this task. After making such finding public Facebook affirmed having 'fixed' the issue - and 'thanked' AMY for pointing it out.
