Service of process by Facebook in Britain

Link to News Story

An interesting development though I don't think that people using Facebook would enjoy the thought of being served via Facebook. I'd imagine there would be personal jurisdiction issues if this was adopted in the United States at least if one of the parties does not live in the forum state and there are no other connections that might make them fall under a long arm statute. Of course that is not as much of an issue if we are talking about diversity jurisdiction in federal court.
