The BBC reports that a man has been convicted for murdering his wife after she changed her Facebook marital status from “Married” to “Single”. This is further proof that Facebook is dangerous and should come with some form of warning:

“This website can cause long-term damage to your relationship; put you in contact with people you would rather forget; destroy the idealised memories of that person you used to have a crush on in high-school; follow the daily happenings of the terminally inane and self-absorbed; and it may eventually cause death.”

Golly. Yet another way found for women to "ask for it". The internet: it's a jungle out there. 😐

As with any murder case, we need to concentrate on the perp…it matters not how they got a motive for murder…only that they took the life of another. Murder is never ok & freedom of speech is still a part of our constitution in the US of A.Dana P.

Dana,I don't think I suggested to ban Facebook, maybe you misunderstood the sarcasm. Besides, many of us are not bound by the U.S. constitution.
