The Associated Press reports that South Carolina is considering legislation that would limit prison inmates’ access to Facebook.  The law, if enacted, would prohibit inmates from accessing Facebook from inside the prison facility and from having friends or relatives create a Facebook page for them.  The news article notes that, “Facebook already prohibits third-party profiles and takes them down when they find out. The company also deactivates prisoner pages when they become aware of them, regardless of who set up the pages.”
