New Paedophile [sic] Monitoring Page On Facebook
"Just hours after a challenge from a convicted sex offender sees one page shut down a new version can be found online.
Facebook was told to remove the offending page
A new Facebook page which claims to be an information service on the whereabouts of paedophiles has been set up just hours after a judge ordered a similar one be removed.
A convicted paedophile, known only as XY, started court proceedings in Northern Ireland against the social networking site after discovering his photograph and threatening comments had been posted on the page called Keeping Our Kids Safe From Predators.
He claimed harassment, misuse of private information, and a breach of his right to privacy and freedom from inhuman or degrading treatment.
High Court judge Mr Justice McCloskey ruled his human rights had been breached and said Facebook must take down the page within 72 hours.
However, during the afternoon a new page with the title Keeping Our Kids Safe From Predators 2 could be found on the site.
"Back 2 the start i go everything i shared from the last page is gone grrrrrrrrrrrr :( just not far (sic) at all...., " the creator posted shortly after setting the new page up."

Sex offender wins case against Facebook vigilantism
"These pages are the hunting grounds of vigilantes, and as we've seen before in the UK, this sort of thing does more harm than good. A naming and shaming campaign started by then–News of the World editor (and now possible jailbird herself) Rebekah Brooks in 2000 led to five families being forced to flee their homes after being mistakenly identified as former sex offenders."

Facebook to Track ‘Keeping Our Kids Safe From Predators 2’ Paedophile [sic] Monitoring Page
"The second page has gained over 3,500 Likes since it appeared online
Facebook said it will track the content of a paedophile [sic] monitoring page after it was forced to remove an identical predecessor page by a high court order.
The page "Keeping our kids safe from predators" was removed after a convicted sex offender who appeared on the page won a court order against it. A judge ruled that some of the content amounted to harassment and breached the man's human rights.
Almost immediately, however, a second Facbook page, "Keeping our kids safe from predators 2", appeared on Facebook. Again, it features the names and pictures of convicted sex offenders.
The second page, which has gained over 3,500 "likes" carries a warning that rude or threatening comments will lead to the removal of the commentator.
A spokesman for Facebook told IBTimes UK that the page was not violating the company's terms and conditions but that it would be monitored.
A spokesman said: "Consistent with the court order, the [first] page is unavailable. We will be studying the text of the order before deciding on [our] next steps.""
