OMG...Tracy still has a FB page!

It wasn't that hard to find out her full name even though it was blacked out, all of her "Friends" were not. Geez, I need a life.

And yes, Facebook is dangerous if you're not cautious! I would never put anything related to my job or my intimate life.

There was the story about the Australian guy who phoned in sick to his work and then posted on FB that he was hungover, forgetting that his manager was a friend. Can't find a screen shot of it anywhere but I'm sure someone else can oblige.

I love how every version of this on the net has a few of her friends name clearly listed. Well at least this version on like some others has kindly omitted Tracy's last name!!

I had a similar story about someone who called in sick on a Friday, but later on, on his MSN messenger, he put something like "XXX is in Amsterdam!"... After a bit of investigation, he was indeed having a nice long week-end in Amsterdam.

And then he did not understand why he's been dismissed.

Some people are just plain stupid...

Her account was evidently hacked. The hacker(s), in addition to making the post in question and her later posts feigning embarrassment, also changed her status from single to engaged.

One of the main reasons why I love FB and the like...they allow the dumbest among us to identify themselves that much more accurately! I really don't fault FB at all...in fact, I'm sure that, if the cases presented above are true, then the bosses/co-workers/dates of these fools appreciate the fact that they found out the truth sooner rather than later. Like I've said in other threads, FB is nothing more than a tool...it's up to you to use it wisely. Thank God some people don't for our collective amusement!

An old school friend of mine recently did a Caribbean cruise out of Miami with his family. On the day he was due to fly home to London, his facebook status changed to say that during his trip he had "found" homosexuality and wanted to come out to his friends and family. He even posted a photo of his supposed "lover", also an old school friend of mine, and taken from a photo that I had taken on a drunken night in a pub back in 2001!!

Of course, a crowd of us on facebook who were all at school with him had a field day posting comments on what he had said, and wishing him well with his new life (well I did anyway, being gay myself...others weren't quite so kind!).

It was only when he arrived home that we found out the truth. He had logged in to facebook at the Apple Store in Miami on his way home, and had stupidly forgotten to log out before he left...and obviously the next person who sat down at that computer decided to have a bit of fun with his account!

That'll learn him!! Big grin

Quoting WestWing (Reply 13):
hacked

It was a hack:

http://blogs.sfweekly.com/thesnitch/...hey_world_tracy_turkish_brooks.php

Quote:
Brooks, who lives in Ventura County, told us that hackers took her account information from a Christian dating Web site and posted it on a bulletin board site called 4chan. Then the hackers of the world went to town. In addition to posting the lewd info on her wall, which later inspired an entire Facebook group, Brooks says hackers also made her profile public and replaced her smiley blond profile picture with one of Satan.

Brooks found out that she had been hacked last Friday and immediately contacted the Palo Alto Facebook office. She had been locked out of the account and had the same password for her e-mail account, so she couldn't change any of her information. Brooks said that Facebook didn't remove her account until Sunday morning. In the meantime, she suffered plenty of embarrassment and says that there are at least six others like her who had their information stolen from the Christian dating Web site and blasted into the hack-o-sphere.

Luckily, Brooks said the hackers weren't able to access any important financial information. Embarrassment aside, she says the hack could have been a lot worse. "Only thing I can say is, lesson learned for me," she told SF Weekly. "Do not keep all of your passwords the same." Lesson learned indeed.

It is also commented on here:
http://www.digital-media.net.au/arti...t-bits-of-social-media/495720.aspx

And the annoying thing is, it could happen to anyone, even those here who scrupulously post only good "safe" things to their FB account.

Me neither. I don't think my employers have facebook accounts. Regardless, I wouldn't throw them under the bus like that. We all have bad days at work; who doesn't, but some folks need to mature and grow up.

what a dumbass...

I actually have my own facebook story...

My fiancee has a cousin who posted a lot of explicit material on her facebook account. Then, my fiancee's aunt joined facebook and friended both my fiance and her cousin...

I hope she was smart enough to delete all that crap!
