Facebook has a long proud history of getting people in trouble, but here’s one you might not have thought of: divorcées.
This AP piece opened our eyes to the growing number of spouses being busted through judicious use of social networks. Stories range from being caught playing Farmville during the kid’s soccer game to couples pics posted on the mistress’s Facebook page. Of course, everything’s archived and time-stamped, so anyone inclined to do a little digging can figure out just about anything they want. On Twitter, there are no secrets.
Of course, most of these problems are more the result of ungentlemanly behavior than invasive tech. It’s unnerving, but the best policy is still not to do anything you’d have trouble explaining to a judge.
Either that, or get comfortable wearing a fake mustache.
