Woman's Facebook Status Update Tips Off Burglars to Her Location
Ironically, it was Facebook that helped solve the case, too. One of McMullen's friends watched the burglary video and recognized one of the men in it as one of her nearly 500 Facebook friends (one she hadn't seen in nearly 20 years). McMullen told News Channel 7, "I did not recognize him at first, but after seeing pictures now, it's definitely him." There's no official word on what happened to the criminals, but we can only assume they'll soon be behind bars.
Facebook friends aren't a repository of everyone you've ever met; choose wisely. Don't post your whereabouts on Facebook. Also, it's probably not a good idea to tag your location to tweets, either. We know you want to keep your friends updated on your comings and goings, but at what price? [From: News Channel 8, Via: All Facebook]
