The Donegal mother of the child has now warned of the dangers posed by Facebook.
The paper says that days after Facebook announced new simplified privacy controls to enhance the protection of users’ information the mother of the teenager said that young people should be educated of the possible dangers of the networking site.
The paper reports that the teenager first became aware that a Facebook page had been set up in his name when the boyfriend of one of his school acquaintances texted him.
He came home from school one day and he had a text message saying ‘‘you’re stalking my girlfriend on Facebook, leave her alone or I’ll kick your head in’’.
It further was revealed in the article that whoever was behind the hoax page had been posting bogus messages on the girl’s Facebook page, making derogatory remarks about her boyfriend and encouraging her to leave him.
