Facebook, Twitter have made our life … truthful

Be very careful about what you write as an update, because your innocent tweet or Facebook update can very easily land you in Jail !

Yes, that right – Now your status messages and tweets are admissible in Courts as electronic evidence under Indian IT laws. I actually scanned my timeline to see how many times have I written something that may be objectionable to others and let me tell you, I found quite a few of them. And in my case, being a blogger, I am a little careful.

I would suggest you to do a rain-check on your tweets and updates. I am sure many will not go at lengths of pulling you to court on some update, but a real disgruntled one can sure take advantage – So be careful ! You may be writing about your Boss or your employer, but remember it is in public domain and can very easily be the reason for your loosing your job.

According to divorce lawyers, the social networking site is tempting users to cheat on their spouses and flirty messages and wall posts are increasingly being cited as evidence of extramarital activity, reports The Telegraph. “I had heard from my staff that there were a lot of people saying they had found out things about their partners on Facebook and I decided to see how prevalent it was,” the New York Daily News quoted Mark Keenan, Managing Director of Divorce-Online, as telling the Telegraph . “I was really surprised to see 20 per cent of all the petitions containing references to Facebook. The most common reason seemed to be people having inappropriate sexual chats with people they were not supposed to,” he added.

The image I guess, explains a lot more than just what I am trying to say. Thank you Rinkee for the email.
