Other Uses of Social Networking Sites

In my earlier post titled “Mom and Son Unite because of Facebook” I had written about a women who was able to locate her son after 20 years because she had found him on Facebook and that was a real touching and dramatic story. Facebook and other social networking sites are so popular that they are overtaking over lives, to stay anonymous a person has to deliberately not be part of any of these sites.

In this story a victim who was attacked searched a Facebook profile and identified his attacker whom the police investigated, created a photo spread of possible suspects and narrowed it down to the attacker and arrested him. Now if you are going to attack, assault, or engage in some unlawful act please don’t have your profile with a picture out there in the web.
