In Clayton County, Georgia, two teachers were on leave after a Facebook love letter led to a fight. The fight was a result from the two women learning they were involved with the same man who also taught in the school. Sounds like a Hollywood love triangle doesn’t it? Or at least a bad TV movie.
Twitter is a very popular social network with celebrities, mainly because it is so quick and easy to update their fans without too much hassle and trouble. Notable celeb Tweeters are Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Soulja Boy, Tyra Banks, Diddy, and (once upon a time) Miley Cyrus. Of course, with such instant updates, there can be problems. For instance, Miley got in a bit of a scandal back in June when her producers posted risque pictures of her posing provocatively on his twitter account. Later, he defended Miley as “a sweet angel.”
A simple message on a social network can also get a person caught in scandal, as did a love letter in the Georgia teacher incident.
When do you feel social networking goes too far?
