Facebook Bites Back

Some folks are real dopes -- and there's no better way to discover that than on the Internet. We have thugs posing with guns on MySpace, predators leaving electronic trails of perversion, and now a brand-new idiot: Joshua Lipton.

This 20-year-old moron was caught drunk driving (it's easy to get caught when you crash and nearly kill someone). Then, two weeks later, someone posted Facebook pictures of Lipton posing with a bunch of beer cans and wearing a striped prison shirt. That's not going to look too good at trial.

Do social networking sites like Facebook have any role in your organization? Tell me yes, no or maybe by writing to [email protected].
