    Man lands in jail following his Facebook posting.

    He was dumb enough to post a piece about how he had a hit and run accident and that he was not caught. Well somebody reported that and the police showed up and landed him in jail (see yahoo news).

    We are finding out more and more people running into problems with their Facebook account including many colleges and potential employers that have refused folks based on reviewing their Facebook account about the candidate and even his/her friends.

    This privacy issue may become a bigger and bigger concern.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • It can also work to your benefit. If you have an outstanding FB account that portrays you as a great person and you have exceptional FB friends, this can help you land a good job. FB gives you a very unique and free of charge opportunity to advertise yourself to potential employers. HOW CAN THIS BE A BAD THING? Of course if you are dumb and you are posting negative things about yourself, you may not deserve to get a job afterall.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
