IN THE NEWS: GOOGLE PROBLE DELAYED

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- The Mississippi attorney general's attempt to investigate Google is on hold for at least four more months. A federal judge has granted Google's request for a preliminary injunction that keeps AG Jim Hood from checking into whether Google is making it easy for users to take part in illegal activities on its sites. The preliminary injunction will also keep Hood from filing either civil or criminal charges for now. Google is basing its position against the investigation on a 1996 federal law. The law says Internet services are immune from lawsuits over what third parties say using the services.

IN THE NEWS: IRAN MONITORING FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Usually when you "like" someone or something on Facebook, only your circle of family or friends know about it. But in Iran, the government knows all about online moves on the world's largest social networking site. Iran's official news agency says the powerful Revolutionary Guard has been monitoring Facebook's Iranian members. A guard official says it has tracked "likes" by 8 million users. Iran accuses Facebook of trying to attract users to "immoral pages" with "obscene content." Iran banned Facebook and many other social networks after the disputed 2009 presidential election. However many Iranian still have access to Facebook and other sites through proxies and VPNs.
