Do you have same respond for me?
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 18 days ago.

Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. It is certainly not illegal to mention the company on FB or to make any comments about it. All you have to endure is that whatever you say is the truth. As long as you only provide truthful and factual information, they cannot do much against you, even if they threaten you with legal action or other. So you need to ensure that whatever comments you make, you can back up with evidence if challenged by them.
