Impartiality of judges

I found it a bit extreme to forbid the use of facebook. It is even hypocrite when one knows that judges and practitionners know each other quite well in real life, especially in the US and the UK where solicitors and barristers later become judges. The essential matter should be to ensure that facebook is not used to communicate on the case involving all sides.
