Would the real Matt Reed please stand up? Student gets kicked off Facebook

The anonymous profile that went under the pseudonym Matt Reed, was kicked off of Facebook due to slanderous activity. The profile that resembled a “juicy campus” concept, asked students in the Palm Beach network to nominate a “tool of the month” and a “citizen of the month” and even included pictures of the nominees. Voting for each category required a private message to the profile but Matt Reed didn’t have the chance to announce the winners before the profile got pulled by Facebook corporate.

“I’m disappointed that I didn’t get to see the official winners,” said junior Katie Weller after hearing that Matt Reed got pulled down. “I thought it was harmless.”

Weller was one of the first students to friend Reed and even sent in private nominations for tool of the month. According to Weller, Reed had built a mass following in his short lived life.

The official Facebook Terms of Use limits the all content including pictures and posts, that could be, “harmful, defamatory, invasive or otherwise objectionable.”

Stay tuned for exclusive interviews with Toolbag nominees.
