A court in Australia has banned a man from using Facebook for two years.

He had created a page on the social networking site which rated the sexual performance of women in central Victoria.

22-year-old Joshua Turner of Kangaroo Flat created the Facebook page in June last year.

The Bendigo Magistrates Court heard he invited people to rate their past sexual partners and published hundreds of comments online.

In what police describe as one of the first cases of its kind in Victoria, one woman complained about a sexually degrading post, prompting an investigation.

The youngest victim in the case was just 16 years old.

Turner pleaded guilty to using an online service to publish objectionable material and using a carriage service to offend.

The magistrate sentenced him to six months in prison, wholly suspended for two years.

His co-accused will face court in August.
