Facebook is NOT Vegas, Baby July 5, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, People.

Hand-rolling-diceSome people on Facebook act like they are players in Vegas . . . rolling the dice, spilling their guts, posting compromising photos, and generally letting it all hang out.

Facebook is NOT Vegas.

What happens on-line does not stay on-line.

You have the right to remain silent but (if you open your big, fat mouth) anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.

That’s right . . . with increasing frequency, attorneys (especially divorce attorneys) are trolling the pages of Facebook like the sharks they are to find evidence to use in court in divorce and custody cases:

Divorce Lawyers:  Facebook Tops In On-Line Evidence

Some on-line goofs they’ve found on Facebook and other on-line sites:

* Husband goes on Match.com and declares his single, childless status while seeking primary custody of said nonexistent children.

* Husband denies anger management issues but posts on Facebook in his “write something about yourself” section: “If you have the balls to get in my face, I’ll kick your ass into submission.”

* Mom denies in court that she smokes marijuana but posts partying, pot-smoking photos of herself on Facebook.

Now, go and clean up your Facebook pages before Big Brother (or his attorney) catches you with your knickers down!

Facebook isn’t Vegas? Hmm… fact is, VEGAS isn’t Vegas anymore, either.
You must be aware that there are cameras, credit card trails and more intrusions than you can see–all around, all the time.

The trick? Just assume you’re being watched. It’s a safe assumption.

I agree.

Assume anything you say or do, and anything you write or post in cyber space, could one day appear as front page headlines.

Or pop up at an inopportune time ~ and be read by someone you’re trying to impress (to get a job or publishing contract).

Be authentic . . . and you have nothing to worry about.

I personally do not get facebook nor the fascination with it or the need to have a page there. The way I look at it, I am in touch with the people I want to be in touch with 🙂

Vegas is fun in a plastic Disney for adults type of way 🙂

Facebook is a useful tool for sharing information and finding people with like interests . . . but it can eat up more time than it’s worth if you’re not careful.

Vegas ~ I haven’t been since 1992 except on the Travel Channel. It might be interesting to see what they’ve done with the place in the past 20 years.
