The Principal of a Limerick school, which recently suspended 28 pupils for posting an offensive photo about a teacher on Facebook, is calling on the Data Protection Commissioner to carry out a full investigation into the incident.
Headmaster Noel Malone, of Coláiste Chiaráin, in Croom, said that he is dissatisfied with Facebook's response to this case.
He said that it took the social networking site four days to act - and it was eventually deleted by the owner of the fake account on which the photo was posted in the first place.
Mr Malone said that Facebook's response to this incident was not good enough and the company must be more proactive in deleting hatred or bullying comments.
"They're claiming now that because it was deleted by the user, they have no way of finding out who the actual perpetrator was," he said.
"That doesn't seem to add on either because they have a particular agreement with the Data Protection Commissioner in terms of holding material for 30 days, if not 60 days or 59 days, I think.
"So I'm kind of very concerned that they're really finding avenues to kind of weasel out of the situation instead of facing up to their social responsibility."
