10 Things You Shouldn’t Do On Facebook…………
1. Post About How Much You Hate Your Job
It’s tempting to air out your grievances on Facebook, but remember your employer could be watching.
Dr. June Talvitie-Siple formerly of Cohasset High School was asked to resign after she updated her Facebook status to call local area parents “arrogant and snobby” and to refer to some her her students as “germ bags.” The statements may or may not have been true, but she should have kept her opinions to herself if she wanted to keep her almost $100,000 a year job.
The police are now scouting Facebook pictures for evidence of underage drinking, so before you post that fun night out, you might want to think twice. Several students at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse faced underage drinking fines after pictures of him at a party surfaced on his Facebook page.
Of age hosts of parties can face legal action too: Theodore and Laura Berent hosted a party where they served alcohol to minors and found themselves in trouble with local law enforcement after pictures ended up on Facebook. And, if your employer finds your drinking questionable, you can be fired. A Barrow County, Ga. teacher was fired because she posted pictures of her drinking at the Guinness Factory and in Temple Bar in Dublin. Although she claims she didn’t appear intoxicated in the pictures, she couldn’t erase the fact that she used an explicative word on her Facebook, which also led to her removal.
If you’re going to do something illegal, it’s pretty obvious that you shouldn’t leave evidence – which also includes logging out of your Facebook profile if you so happened to check in while robbing a house. Had this thief not stopped to check his profile on his way out, he may have never been caught. Instead, now there’s irrefutable evidence he was in the victim’s home illegally.
Anthony Stancl received 15 years in jail for extorting naked photos through Facebook from underage males. Stancl, who was 18 at the time, posed as a female on the social networking site and tricked classmates into sending explicit photos of themselves, which he used as blackmail. The fake profile was eventually traced back to him.
Burglars are now becoming tech savvy and checking Facebook to see if you are out of the house. A string of New Hampshire robberies were tied to this modus operandi; the suspects checked Facebook for children’s or parents’ updates that said that the family was going to go on vacation. A Virginia woman was robbed as well after she said she was going to a concert at a specific time on a specific day, leaving her house empty for several hours.
However, Facebook saved the day on this one: A friend watched the video from her home surveillance security system and recognized one of robbers as one of the Virginia woman’s 500 “friends.”
Yeah, we know you want to tell all your friends about that cool new computer, iPad and iPod you got for your birthday, but remember there may be some disingenous people reading your Facebook update as well. British-based Legal & General warns that Facebook users might be making themselves potential targets when posting about their expensive new items, and when coupled with letting people know you are out of the home for a while on vacation or at a special event, it can be an invitation to be robbed. Similarly, posting personal details like your address and phone number can make it even easier for those robbers to determine where you live and when you aren’t home.
