Facebook Cracks Down On Criminal Fan Pages

Updated: Wednesday, October 24 2012, 10:31 AM CDT

Facebook fan pages for criminals, alleged or convicted, will not be tolerated-- that's the stance the social media network is taking after recently taking down a fan page that was created for one of the U.K.'s most-wanted men.

The Facebook page was created for Dale Cregan, a suspected murderer who is accused of killing at least four people, including two unarmed police officers.

The fan page referred to Cregan as a "legend" and within days had several dozen likes.

According to the Telegraph, Facebook's Director of Policy Simon Milner defended the site's decision to remove the page saying - "Our terms of service are absolutely clear on this kind of thing." However, the social network has not taken down a fan page that calls for his death. "Hang Dale Cregan" has more than 21,000 likes.
