You've Been Served...via Facebook

The Australian courts allowed a bank to serve legal documents via Facebook after a couple defaulted on their home loan.

The Australian Capital Territory Supreme Court has approved the use of Facebook to serve legal documents to a couple who was otherwise inaccessible at their home or by e-mail, although the couple has since disappeared from the social networking site as well.

The unnamed Australian couple had defaulted on their home loan for AUS$100,000 (almost US$67,000), which spurred the bank to seek the services of Canberra-based law firm Meyer Vandenberg.

I wonder if this will lead to other countries approving Facebook as an alternative method of service.

yes, i agree with Jeff. i think that it is not really practical to use this for service and that if there are no more ways, then they may use Facebook.
