Thousands of inmates in California’s state prisons have access to contraband mobile phones and are using them to update Facebook, among other things. Now, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) is asking the social network to shut down Facebook accounts that have been updated since the prisoners’ incarceration.
The CDCR has begun reporting Facebook accounts set up and monitored by prison inmates to Facebook Security. Accounts set up and/or monitored on behalf of an inmate will be removed since doing either is a violation of Facebook’s user policies, according to the state.
