Naked Nuns on Facebook

Ananova relays a story in Italy about a Nun upset about Facebook photos

The 31-year-old woman who lives in Turin said she was devastated when she saw the pictures, taken in summer 2006 during a holiday in Sicily, on the social networking site.

The man who said he wanted to stop her becoming a nun has refused to remove the pictures despite the woman’s requests.

Seems to melike a case of unauthorized use of personal images, violating her privacy, but also a situation that resembles blackmail. Italian privacy laws such as 675/96 and 196/03 will probably lead the Supervisory Authority (Garante) to dispense of this quickly on a personal level. The bigger question will be how Facebook handles the case and whether they will attract prosecutors based on the steps they take and when.
