Is Richard on Facebook?


Hi GNU Guys,

Richard mentioned not to use Facebook, which is actually very good, but ... Is Richard on Facebook?

here a link:
https://www.facebook.com/richard.stallman.96

Anyone, no "surveillance" for me, no facebook. And you? Really GNU?

If you scroll down on that page you'll realize there are a bunch of profiles pretending to be Richard Stallman in FB. I doubt FB will care whether these are fake profiles or not, honestly.

I thought fecalbook was all about routing out fakes and ensuring it's database was full of real peoples' data?

I should't think that RMS cares whether people pretend to be him on farcebook or not -- the people who matter will know it's not him anyway.
