Part One Suspended, Fired, Arrested for Facebook and Twitter Posts
Part Two – Facebook Privacy Concerns: Safety for Parents and Children

You’ve probably heard many times about people that have been fired from their jobs, suspended from school, or even arrested and put in jail just because of what they’ve posted online.

Usually this refers to what they’ve posted on Facebook. Sometimes it refers to what they’ve posted on Twitter. Other times it’s something else entirely, be it a personal blog post or a YouTube video.

Maybe they don’t even get into trouble of that extreme, but they get some sort of reprimand, regardless. Many times, these people probably don’t give it a second thought until that happens.

10 Dangerous and Annoying Bad Habits of Some Drivers

“Greg doesn’t have that
problem anymore”

On my way home today I got tailgated again. It comes as no surprise as I get tailgated almost daily, even multiple times on some days. I try to keep myself calm. It doesn’t always work.

Casey Anthony is set to be released from prison this Sunday, July 17th. That would make roughly two weeks that she remained in prison since the trial and the “not guilty” verdict was given.
