Misuse Of Technology : Facebook Eradicates ‘Account Of Osama Bin Laden’

Osama bin Laden Facebook page April 24, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Terrorists have unearthed in Facebook a fresh medium for the dissemination of their vitriolic ideology. The terrorist outfits and their chieftains are diligently utilizing Facebook in order to spread their menacing and bloodthirsty standpoints and to magnetize a large number of devotees. This represents one of the disadvantages of technology since terrorist organizations can employ it to launch their venomous propaganda and to indoctrinate vulnerable individuals.

In keeping with the above mentioned statements, Facebook has declared that it had recently immobilized an account on the shared networking site. This account was under the name of the dreaded and cold-blooded Al-Qaeda director, Osama Bin Laden. This account had positioned terrorist Islamic content and had harvested in excess of 1,000 ‘fans.’ This is indeed frightening news. The very thought of Islamist fundamentalist outfits utilizing technological advancements to further their bigoted missions is fear-provoking.

Facebook spokesperson Andrew Noyes articulated to AFP in an email that individuals over and over again have endeavored to catalog bogus accounts under the name of celebrated or villainous personalities. However, Noyes has reassured the political and ideological moderates internationally that Facebook has a number of technological steps intended to put a stop to these activities.

Noyes verbalized that, sometimes, these bogus accounts do emerge triumphantly. However, there is no verification to imply that the account under consideration or the other dozens of individuals, who have attempted to launch themselves as Osama Bin Laden, possess any vocational or genetic relation to the said terrorist.

The account of Osama, which was immobilized a few days back, had placed vocalizations and acoustic recordings of Islamic fanatics. These recordings were procreated by the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Al-Sahab Media Group.

The page on Facebook brought up Bin Laden as the ‘Prince of Mujahideen’ and put in his location as the ‘mountains of the world’. This information was declared by ABC. It invoked Arabic news website, Elaph.
