Who would have thought it? A legal firm in Australia have just served legal papers through Facebook on a couple who had failed to respond to letters or emails, or attend a court date.

The judge in the case has allowed lawyer Mark McCormack to contact the couple, and serve repossession papers on their house, through a private message on Facebook after other attempts to contact them failed.

It will be interesting to see whether other businesses, aside from the legal profession, start to use social networks for debt collecting and so on.
