If I'm reading this correctly, he hasn't even met her yet much less sampled the nookie.

You are correct.
You HAVE to make your story it's own thread. I'm curious about your ages, kids, past marriages, etc.
:wub: There's absolutely no way this can go wrong for any party involved.

I was browsing through random pictures and profiles Tuesday night, a lady caught my eye so I sent a friendship request just for the heck of it. Soon my request was accepted followed almost immediately by her popping up in the FB chat. We have chatted quite a bit the past few nights, exchanged a few emails and texts.

She is making plans to fly in for a visit next week. :shrug:

This took a twist over the weekend.

When I made the original post I thought I had the makings of an interesting story for the FFA but now I'm reluctant to go public with it. We may be getting married. SERIOUSLY!

First time with a girl, eh?

I discovered over the weekend that one of my deceased friends kind of sort of has a page. The person listed is "Greg's Friends" but has an Info page listing that his religious views are "In Heaven". Also, there are real updates... such as "packing for Neil's wedding weekend".

This particular friend was killed in a train accident in Italy 10 years ago. I'm guessing it is his parents who are driving, but the lack of clear delineation has me ;)

How do you single guys meet random singles on facebook? My cousin used to make fun of me being on facebook, but he has been on for a few months now because I told him that I thought he could meet females pretty easily. Yet I have no idea how to tell him he should go about it. Any links or groups or suggestions I can give him or do you guys just randomly befriend complete strangers?

This method is working for me.

So I signed up for this crap a couple days ago. Everybody had kept telling me how great it was and all that crap. So far my page is littered with people begging for crap in online games and updates from an old HS acquaintance that still lives in his parents basements telling me about every movie he watches with his endless spare time and what albums he's going to listen to while he cuts the grass.

I have to say, this pretty much sucks.

Beside each post, you can choose to ignore the person, or ignore the application. I play a couple of these games, but I have probably over a hundred others on my ignore list. Also, on the left side, you can click Friends, Status updates and only see status updates and none of these application feeds. It also hides links, videos and pictures too, but if that's cool with you, that may be what you like best. Edited by SlaX

Facebook's goodness / lameness is exactly proportional to the quality of your friends. Back when e-mail was the primary form of Net communication, you had hilarious friends that sent great e-mails, and you had stupid, boring friends that sent you chain letters or recycled jokes from 10 years ago.

My wife tutored this young man for awhile, and we all keep in touch with Facebook. He's a nice kid, but as is the case with some of today's youth, his command of the English language via texting is awful.So he posts this nonsensical bull#### the other day and look at his aunt's response:

TIM: Oncee a muthafu##nn againnn!

AUNT: You better call grandma tomorrow, she broken her shoulder today afternoon, we went home 1 hour ago, but now she's resting and she's fine!

I thought it was an odd juxtaposition and an odd way to communicate family news like that.

Divorce lawyers: Facebook tops in online evidence

Posted: Jun 28, 2010 5:02 PM EDT

Updated: Jun 29, 2010 5:22 PM EDT

By LEANNE ITALIE

Associated Press Writer

Forgot to de-friend your wife on Facebook while posting vacation shots of your mistress? Her divorce lawyer will be thrilled.

Oversharing on social networks has led to an overabundance of evidence in divorce cases. The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers says 81 percent of its members have used or faced evidence plucked from Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and other social networking sites, including YouTube and LinkedIn, over the last five years.

"Oh, I've had some fun ones," said Linda Lea Viken, president-elect of the 1,600-member group. "It's very, very common in my new cases."

Facebook is the unrivaled leader for turning virtual reality into real-life divorce drama, Viken said. Sixty-six percent of the lawyers surveyed cited Facebook foibles as the source of online evidence, she said. MySpace followed with 15 percent, followed by Twitter at 5 percent.

About one in five adults uses Facebook for flirting, according to a 2008 report by the Pew Internet and American Life Project. But it's not just kissy pix with the manstress or mistress that show up as evidence. Think of Dad forcing son to de-friend mom, bolstering her alienation of affection claim against him.

"This sort of evidence has gone from nothing to a large percentage of my cases coming in, and it's pretty darn easy," Viken said. "It's like, 'Are you kidding me?'"

Neither Viken, in Rapid City, S.D., nor other divorce attorneys would besmirch the attorney-client privilege by revealing the identities of clients, but they spoke in broad terms about some of the goofs they've encountered:

- Husband goes on Match.com and declares his single, childless status while seeking primary custody of said nonexistent children.

- Husband denies anger management issues but posts on Facebook in his "write something about yourself" section: "If you have the balls to get in my face, I'll kick your ### into submission."

- Father seeks custody of the kids, claiming (among other things) that his ex-wife never attends the events of their young ones. Subpoenaed evidence from the gaming site World of Warcraft tracks her there with her boyfriend at the precise time she was supposed to be out with the children. Mom loves Facebook's Farmville, too, at all the wrong times.

- Mom denies in court that she smokes marijuana but posts partying, pot-smoking photos of herself on Facebook.

The disconnect between real life and onlineis hardly unique to partners de-coupling in the United States. A DIY divorce site in the United Kingdom, Divorce-Online, reported the word "Facebook" appeared late last year in about one in five of the petitions it was handling. (The company's caseload now amounts to about 7,000.)

Divorce attorneys Ken and Leslie Matthews, a husband and wife team in Denver, Colo., don't see quite as many online gems. They estimated 1 in 10 of their cases involves such evidence, compared to a rare case or no cases at all in each of the last three years. Regardless, it's powerful evidence to plunk down before a judge, they said.

"You're finding information that you just never get in the normal discovery process - ever," Leslie Matthews said. "People are just blabbing things all over Facebook. People don't yet quite connect what they're saying in their divorce cases is completely different from what they're saying on Facebook. It doesn't even occur to them that they'd be found out."

Social networks are also ripe for divorce-related hate and smear campaigns among battling spousal camps, sometimes spawning legal cases of their own.

"It's all pretty good evidence," Viken said. "You can't really fake a page off of Facebook. The judges don't really have any problems letting it in."

The attorneys offer these tips for making sure your out-loud personal life online doesn't wind up in divorce court:

WHAT YOU SAY CAN AND WILL BE HELD AGAINST YOU

If you plan on lying under oath, don't load up social networks with evidence to the contrary.

"We tell our clients when they come in, 'I want to see your Facebook page. I want you to remember that the judge can read that stuff so never write anything you don't want the judge to hear,'" Viken said.

BEWARE YOUR FRENEMIES

Going through a divorce is about as emotional as it gets for many couples. The desire to talk trash is great, but so is the pull for friends to take sides.

"They think these people can help get them through it," said Marlene Eskind Moses, a family law expert in Nashville, Tenn., and current president of the elite academy of divorce attorneys. "It's the worst possible time to share your feelings online."

A PICTURE MAY BE WORTH ... BIG BUCKS

Grown-ups on a good day should know better than to post boozy, carousing or sexually explicit photos of themselves online, but in the middle of a contentious divorce? Ken Matthews recalls photos of a client's partially naked estranged wife alongside pictures of their kids on Facebook.

"He was hearing bizarre stories from his kids. Guys around the house all the time. Men running in and out. And there were these pictures," Matthews said.

PRIVACY, PRIVACY, PRIVACY

They're called privacy settings for a reason. Find them. Get to know them. Use them. Keep up when Facebook decides to change them.

Viken tells a familiar story: A client accused her spouse of adultery and he denied it in court. "The guy testified he didn't have a relationship with this woman. They were just friends. The girlfriend hadn't put security on her page and there they were. 'Gee judge, who lied to you?'"

Divorce lawyers: Facebook tops in online evidence

We recently sold IT support services to a local municipality and one of the services we offer is web content filtering. Told the chief we can block time-wasting sites such as Facebook and Ebay. He looked at me like I was crazy and said "Are you kidding, we get most of our evidence from Facebook nowadays, these idiot kids post everything on there!".

Wifey is appealing a disability denial. She was warned by the lawyer to make sure there isn't anything incriminating on FB. Makes sense. if someone is applying for disability and posts pics of waterskiing...easy evidence against.

;) Chief said one of the best uses is just connecting people. One guy will claim he doesnt know another guy and the first thing they do is check FB to see if they are friends. He said the pics of them smoking bongs on there is just icing on the cake.

That many people have their profile in public view? I would think that most people would keep FB on private or are there ways around that?

I have very good reason to believe that law enforcement has a way around that. Not going into details.
Wasn't there a story earlier in the year about a police officer friending some young stupid criminal on FB by simply having a hot chick as the picture. Then once they were friends the cops could look at all his info.
