Louisiana sex offenders must list status on Facebook‎

This story gives the Generation X phrase “It’s not official until it’s Facebook official” an entirely new meaning.

Imagine you’re Facebook stalking an old ex, or someone you knew back in grade school, or maybe an old neighbor and their status reads “sex offender”.

If they’re in Louisiana, that very well could happen.

New law in the pelican state requires sex offenders to put their criminal status on their social media pages.

While many may argue this violates human rights, be reminded that sex offenders and child predators already have fewer rights than other convicts.

In most states, they’re required to alert their neighbors and their name and address is posted on the sexual predator online registry.

Facebook and others alike have already deactivating predators’ accounts. But, the guy who came up with this law says that’s not enough and this new law takes the guess work out. Then, you can to do the unfriending.

If you think about it, most of these creeps will probably just stay off social media altogether now.

Maybe other states will follow Louisiana.
