If you are a thief, you might not want to post anything on Facebook or other social networking sites.
This week, a 15-year-old New York boy used Facebook to identify his mugger. On October 27, the victim had his wallet and cell phone snatched at a bus stop in Staten Island, New York. However, the victim thought he recognized the robber from around his neighborhood, and used Facebook to find him. The alleged mugger, 18-year-old Philip Joe, was arrested by police the very next day.
