For fifteen minutes on Sunday night, the French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s Facebook page carried the following news bombshell:
“My fellow citizens, given the exceptional circumstances that our country is experiencing, I decided in my soul and in my conscience not to run for re-election at the end of my first term in 2012.”
Alas, it was only a hacker having a bit of fun. But before it was taken down, 123 people had a chance to ‘like’ the status update. A vote of confidence for the incumbent head of state if ever there was one!
