When posting to Facebook, whether it's a photograph or written statement, please be aware that this matter WILL be viewed by those wishing to view your page. If you are applying to a school or a job, seeking an elected or appointed position, those who are reviewing your credentials may see the information you have posted. Think about how a potential employer would feel toward hiring you if certain pictures of you were posted. In a criminal investigation, if all of your pictures are with the co-defendants in your case, it is likely to aid the prosecution in making their case before the jury. It is fun and easy to use Facebook and MySpace in order to communicate with family and friends but remember that they are not the only ones reading what you post.
