41 year old Dana Thornton was in deep doo doo recently after creating a fake facebook
page to impersonate her ex-boyfriend.
While a lot of you may be prone to taking revenge on an ex in various ways, Thornton’s choice to utilize facebook could cost her 18 months in jail and attorney’s fees to fight a long court battle after her ex, a police detective, decided to pursue criminal charges for identity theft!
Yes…. facebook is apparently THAT dayum serious!

So the story goes like this… a young girl blocks her parents from her Facebook profile and proceeds to post derogatory comments and photos. Completely oblivious to the fact that the world sees everything on line…? all teens do it these days, right?
But as any loving, hands-on parent would do, the young girl’s father had access to her account and saw what she was doing online.
Now he’s giving her a dose of what he calls “Facebook Parenting: For the Troubled Teen”….
My daughter thought it would be funny/rebellious/cool to post on her Facebook wall just how upset she was and how unfair her life here is; how we work her too hard with chores, never pay her for chores, and just in general make her life difficult.
She chose to share this with the entire world on Facebook and block her parent’s from seeing it. Well, umm… she failed. As of the end of this video, she won’t have to worry anymore about posting inappropriate things on Facebook…
Maybe a few kids can take something away from this… If you’re so disrespectful to your parents and yourself as to post this kind of thing on Facebook, you’re deserving of some tough love.
Today, my daughter is getting a dose of tough love.
OOooh…. this should be good! 🙂

Montgomery, 30, posted the photo above on his Facebook page and now he’s facing federal charges.? You see… the feds had been watching Montgomery, who was a suspect in a robbery and when quick witted agents examined his Facebook page… WALLA! There was a photo of him posing with a thick wad of cash.
And if the pic wasn’t enough, Montgomery even posted a few suspicious status updates… *sigh*
They shoulda never gave you knee-grows internet access… 😕

I wrote a post a while back putting one of my Facebook friends on blast and while I’m not doing that THIS time, there are definitely some people in my FB newsfeed that fit the description of a BGF.
That’s “Black Girl Facebooker”for those who don’t know. BTW – I just made that up. 😆

This is a profile picture on facebook…then lil mama has her name place of employment and everything else on her profile…really? Who does that?
I think I can safely say posting a photo like this (especially alongside your employment information) is a social media DON’T! I swear some people should be banned from the innnnanet!
On a lighter note, if you feel like an URB-al ATL flashback…. Continue Reading…
