I’m filing these articles for future reference: they’re recent articles about what happens when your mom and dad join Facebook.

I guess this would be a bad time to remind these folks that HR departments also prowl Facebook, checking the names/profiles of job candidates.

@Chris Taylor: Oh yeah, that’s worth an article all by itself. Maybe I’ll write a “How to get hired and not fired because of your Facebook” article soon.

You get off Facebook and head to a club or bar. Facebook isn’t social life.
