Whistleblower website Wikileaks claims it has had its Facebook page deleted.
According to the WikiLeaks Twitter account, the website had more than 30,000 fans at the time it was deleted.
The accompanying note read the page had been disabled because it “promotes illegal acts”.
However, another page claiming to be the official WikiLeaks page remains on Facebook, with some 500+ fans.
That page says at the time of its launch on April 13, that it was “waiting for the fans to be migrated from other pages”.
A Facebook spokeswoman said the page with 30,000 members could have been taken down for a number of reasons, most likely because it had received a complaint from a member about objectionable content.
