J.K. Rowling has updated the rumor sectionopens in new window of her website to inform fans that she does not have a profile on any social networking sites, including MySpace or Bebo.

The rumor is that one of the many J.K. Rowling pages MUST be the real Jo, and she replies:

No, sorry, not even one of them, though they do seem to lead very exciting lives, these fake J K Rowlings. I like to imagine them partying with all my imaginary friends ('a close friend confided...') in some bright and shiny alternative universe. But meanwhile, on planet earth, the dull human J K Rowling hasn't got, and has never had, a profile on MySpace, Bebo or any similar site.
