HS – NEW HAVEN — April 16, 2012 — With the prolific rise of online social networking websites, it has never been easier to share information with others.
Photos, messages, status updates, and even relationship statuses are shared across a vast network of individuals.
Not everyone has benefited from such public policies. Remember this self-incriminating crook?
But while Facebook and Twitter have become useful investigative tools, the social networking websites also led some to receive criminal charges.
Recently, UK woman was arrested after deliberately crashing her ex-boyfriend’s car after he ended their relationship by changing his Facebook relationship status to “single.”
Claire Holley, 31, did not take kindly to the public internet breakup. After stewing over the ordeal with a few cocktails, she took her ex’s car, drove to the bowling alley where he works, and crashed through the glass window.
Always remember that your social media posts are public and consider the possible reactions you may receive to the content that you share.
