I have recently discovered that there is downside to social networking sites such as facebook.
My lovely manager can find things out about me. For example, I really want to bunk work this weekend because I have something better to do but can't for fear some one will tag me in a picture and she will find out that I don't actually have swine flu and then she will probably fire me. Not only does she find out what I'm up to and whether I'm actually ill.... she leaves comments on my status. My brother, cousins and other relatives and family friends also do this. My cousins now have the opportunity to bribe with information obtained from facebook that I really would prefer my parents to not know about.
