'We think the inquest into the death of Dr David Kelly, former UN Weapons Inspector, should be re-opened' This is the highly commendable description on a page of the massive Facebook site. It can be accessed here: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=193075719823&v=wall#!/group.php?gid=193075719823&v=info
To be honest I'm not really into social networking, and "Facebook" I suppose is the most familiar of the sites for this sort of thing, but it has to be said that Facebook isn't solely a site for just everyday chit-chat. It is also a vehicle for mounting campaigns and the page I've linked to and started by Margaret is one such. In the links on the info page can be seen "wall" and this is where members can write comments and generally interact with other like minded people.
Although Facebook likes people to talk about themselves on the site this really isn't necessary. So if, like me, you want to remain fairly anonymous it isn't a problem. There is a fairly simple procedure to register and once done you are encouraged to say something to your other "friends" but if you aren't comfortable with this there is no coercion! As with this blog for example the readers are always likely to substantially outnumber those commenting! There are editing facilities - I saw them somewhere - so you can control how much of your profile is visible to the casual reader.
If you are already a regular user of Facebook then you know how it all works. If not it is still worth clicking the link above and having a look around. Margaret and Miriam are doing a really good job on Facebook and I recommend their site to you.
