Your Facebook Friend may not be your Friend

I cringe from time to time when I watch people tell all on Facebook. Some folks for reasons totally foreign to me have an insatiable need to discuss everything about themselves on Facebook, when they get up, when they go to bed, when they go to work, when they go on vacation, when they go to the bathroom, their medical problems, their financial problems, their horrid ex-lovers......the list is endless.

A 31 year old woman was bound and gagged and made a "sex slave" by one of her Facebook friends. She eventually got away. The Facebook friend had previously been jailed for manslaughter, child rape, and attempted murder. I'm not exactly sure what this guy was doing out walking around but he was out there just Facebooking away.

So next time you just can't wait to reveal everything about yourself and jump for joy at every "friend request" on your social network, just think for a minute who might be watching.
