One does not have a Constitutional Right to have a facebook account in this country. Also, not all speech in this country is protected. Meaning, if one defames another person in written or oral form, he or she can be sued.

Given your broad question, I suggest that you consult with an attorney that practices Constitutional law to further assist you on your matter.

Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
