I sent some questions today to a pro choice facebook page. I was very polite. I was civil. I was not harassing. They contacted my place of work through facebook and said that I need to be told to leave them alone. Can they do this? Isn't this invasion of my privacy?
Yes they can and no it is not. You have made a public posting on Facebook and you have no legal expectation of privacy that your comments will be kept confidential. As far as contacting your employer, provided that it was not done as part of a scheme of criminal harassment, they would be free to do so. Again, you have made a public posting of your opinions, which you have a right to do, but you do not have a legal right of privacy associated with your postings.
