Sex Offenders In Louisianna Now Required To Declare Status On Social Media Sites

Recently, Louisiana has passed a regulation to require all criminal sex offenders to publicly display their “Sex Offender” status on social networking sites, such as Facebook.  Not only that, but they must include the crime they were convicted of, the jurisdiction of their conviction, a physical description and a residential address with any profile.  Although, Facebook already has a policy of “no sex offenders allowed” in their statement of rights and responsibilities, the state has elected a hard sentence for those who fail to comply.  Facebook also has been thinking of allowing persons under 13 to create profiles recently.  With this in mind, do you see this as a little overboard?  Or do you think other states should follow in their steps?
