Facebook is for friends, not for investigators, or is it?

A Canadian woman recently lost her disability benefits that she was receiving for major depression when an insurance investigator found pictures of her on Facebook having a happy vacation and a jovial birthday party.

I'm not posting this to side with the woman or the insurance company. I'm posting this to remind folks, be cautious what you post on social networking sites and lock down who can see what. You definitely don't want your boss seeing wild pictures of you partying. Facebook allows you to limit who gets to see what kind of information from you. Familiarize yourself with those features and use them, while still exercising your common sense.
