New La. law: Sex offenders must list status on social media
"(CNN) -- A new Louisiana law requires sex offenders and child predators to state their criminal status on their Facebook or other social networking page, with the law's author saying the bill is the first of its kind in the nation.
State Rep. Jeff Thompson, a Republican from Bossier City, Louisiana, says his new law, effective August 1, will stand up to constitutional challenge because it expands sex offender registration requirements, common in many states, to include a disclosure on the convicted criminal's social networking sites as well."

I thought FB had a policy in place that SO's could not participate. I've had pages taken down when I found out they were SO's. I know there are thousands out there, and would hope if FB found out about them, they would boot them -- not give them access to millions of children. Ughhhh!
6. You will not use Facebook if you are a convicted sex offender.
