  • If you're stupid enough to put it online you deserve the alimony payment you're about to start making.

  • I agree with NP. My and hubby's MS and FB passwords are stored on the computer so, there is no hiding anything even if I wanted to.

  • I think it's absurd to blame a website for your idiocy. The website itself doesn't twist your arm to flirt inappropriately with people other than your SO or to post those pictures...

  • I thought the time factor would also be mentioned. I became acquainted with CM and FB when my husband relocated across the country for his job and I stayed behind with our then HS Senior. It can be hard to control the time spent now that we are living under the same roof again. Sometimes I think working more would be a welcomed diversion.

  • It is a mistake for anyine to post intimate details about your life on Facebook. If someone is dumb enough to cheat and dumb enough to post incriminating details or photos on Facebook, they deserve to be caught and I don't feel sorry for them at all.

  • I wouldn't blame Facebook! I love Facebook, it allows me to keep in touch with friends and family. I don't cheat or "flirt" so it isn't a problem for me. My FB account is an open book so to speak if my dh ever wants to see it and he doesn't do FB to begin with.

  • I have to keep mine pretty private most of it is.. I am going through a divorce and I never complain in facebook about him because we have the same friends on the list and it will get back to him. I slipped once and he told me a friend told him what I said.. I can only think of three that did and have not decided how to handle them just yet.. divorce is not final so I have to be very wise in stuff regarding my life and I still live in the same house. Yes I have had my dad, my lawyer and others tell me not to share stuff concerning the divorce online.. my kids have an account and so that is a very good reason to keep it shut. I dont air much anyway but do have that temptation when I am upset to spill but I cork it well now adays! Those people that dont are not using common sense at all.
