    Facebook "Pokes" can be used for Court Notification

    http://tech.msn.com/news/articlecnet...1364&gt1=40000

    By Declan McCullagh, cnet news

    Facebook grew to more than 100 million users by providing a way for friends and family to keep in touch with one another. But few, if any, probably expected that their Facebook accounts offer lawyers a handy new way to tell them that they've been sued.

    It's already happened in Australia, where a court recently allowed a lawyer for a mortgage lender to use Facebook as a method of serving legal documents. The purpose of the suit: to let a couple know that they're about to lose their home through foreclosure after defaulting on a loan.

    Next step, Facebook and Myspace accounts, must by law be checked each week day!

    I think I have to agree with this one. Seems to me, that being served, you should have to get an actually paper handed to you.
