If you are going to use Facebook, be smart about it

Membership of Facebook should require some sort of an IQ test to qualify to help protect stupid people from themselves.

A Sicilian drug lord on the run from the local law enforcement was proving to be untraceable, until a series of ill-considered photos were posted on Facebook, according to The Guardian.

Clearly having a good time while on the run, Michele Grasso posted photos of himself at the London Eye, Tower Bridge, Oxford Circus and Madame Tussauds.

Not long after, Grasso, who was sentenced in his absence to five years in prison and a £20,000 fine for drug dealing, found himself on a plane to Italy on his way to jail in Rome.

Downtime thinks, at the very least, Facebook should require three confirmations before allowing anyone to post pics online.
