FB User charged

A 19-year-old man posted on Facebook some allegedly inflammatory and derogatory statements about British soldiers and was charged and convicted for what the young man said he did not know what the fuss was all about.

It brings home the point that FB although you may hide your true identity from your friends you cannot hide from the law and even thought you may think that no one’s watching you or that you may not be that important for anyone to take you seriously, think again.  Everything you post on FB is public and there are people who troll the site for all kinds of aberrant behaviours.
