    For someone who subscribes to social media but does not go there often, the world just became a dangerous place. Facebook and twitter were designed to be pastimes, not anything official. Zuckenberg takes no responcibiliy for the Frankenstein Monster he has created.You know damn well that the private process server crowd will take advantage of this and start sending messages this way for the production line collection law firms which employ them. This will be abused to the nith degree and decisions will be made by non lawyer JPs and County Judges that will make a mockery of the right to notice and a hearing.

    Just another reason NOT to participate in the folly of social media.
