Facebook kills man in prank

Social networking site Facebook is in the headlines again for all the wrong reasons. A user was killed off as part of a prank by a friend. The ‘friend’ created a memorial site for Dan Evans, which soon had 600 sad members. Downtime is a bit upset because a story that recently appeared said Facebook had 350 million members and Downtime had to go back and change this to 349,999,999 million. And then back to 350 million when it turned out to be a hoax.
