Maybe Italy Should Worry Less About Facebook And More About Actual Faces

The face that launched a thousand hits

In another example of the sterling work done by the Italian security services, a “young Italian with a history of mental problems has been arrested after he tried to enter the hospital room of Silvio Berlusconi during the night.” (This is a different Italian with mental problems from the one who smashed Berlusconi in the face with a souvenir statuette on Sunday.) Meanwhile, amid threats by the Italian government to crack down on anti-Berlusconi pages on various social networking sites, Facebook has announced that it would carefully monitor its pages and “take quick action to respond to reports, and remove any content reported to us that makes direct threats against an individual.”
