Facebook turn off Cristiano Ronaldo's public profile

Tuesday, May 5, 2009

Facebook have removed the public profile for Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo, which had nearly 2.9 million fans according to PageData.

The social networking site shut it down because it was not administered by Ronaldo or his official representative. Instead, it was run by Kunwar Ali, a big soccer fan from Pakistan who had tacit approval from the soccer star’s agency.

"In the process of communicating with Cristiano Ronaldo’s people, we discovered that the page admin was violating our Terms of Service and so we removed the page," a Facebook spokesperson told Inside Facebook.

Critics have labeled the move "heavy handed" and ask why Facebook did not try to facilitate a joint-administration agreement, as it did between Coca-Cola and the fans who created its most popular public profile.

Last month it was claimed Ronaldo's popularity in the United States was second only to US President Barrack Obama, who has over 6,000,000 supporters on Facebook.

The 24-year-old Portuguese has even successfully usurped all the showbiz, Hollywood and music icons such as Megan Fox, Jay-Z and Brad Pitt.
