The discipline and beating of misbehaving children on video and being posted to Youtube and Facebook is a recent phenomenon that doesn’t seem to be slowing down one bit. The unverified story is that young lady scantily dressed in this video has been been missing for three days and presumed dead by her father.
Being a parent I can understand the pure horror of what this father was going through but this beating may in the end may cause more damage than good. I am not saying that to give his child a good ole fashioned whipping is wrong, the fact it was posted on the internet for the world to see is where I have my serious reservations.
Pretty much my whole feed is GUILTY. Lol.
I will post a few below and you can read the rest of at BUZZFEED.
Check out their timeline. If someone only uses their status updates to tell you what a miserable day they’re having, to complain about their life, or use their feed as a way to get people to feel sorry for them, then it’s time to hit the unfriend button.
6. Your super political and religious friend(s).
If there’s one thing that people should learn about Facebook, it’s that you won’t convert someone to your side by posting multiple links and using ALL CAPS in the comments. But overly eager political and religious people just love to do this, and if you say anything about it to them, they’ll say you’re part of the problem. To save your feed from being clogged up with op-ed pieces, just say goodbye to this friend.
Once again the addiction of social media has surfaced and brought down a multi-million dollar drug gang who could not stop posting their exploits on Facebook and Instagram. You would think even drug dealers would smarten up and keep their activities quiet for fear of the authorities easily putting together the pieces but in this day and age that is not the case. Daily News has the scoop below:

A massive and dangerous Manhattan coke ring that made millions delivering door-to-door coke for $120 a gram is now out of business — thanks in part to the gangsters’ own incriminating online boasting and photo-posting, officials said today.
I guess this serves some sort of purpose and is probably awesome just don’t ask me to explain it. They do a detailed job right HERE.
For all you guys who talk reckless gang stuff on Facebook.
Facebook and other social platforms are watching users’ chats for criminal activity and notifying police if any suspicious behavior is detected, according to a report.
The screening process begins with scanning software that monitors chats for words or phrases that signal something might be amiss, such as an exchange of personal information or vulgar language.
Hit the jump for the promo video.
Seems to be some debate on Youtube if this is credible. I guess only time will tell and oddly this attck is supposedly in resonse to the taking down of Mega Upload. The transcript is after the jump.
In the wake of the federal takedown of Megaupload, hacker collective Anonymous has been on a retaliatory spree.
Yesterday, they managed to divert all traffic away from CBS.com, following their takedowns of government sites and Universal Music Group last week.
And according to a video posted this morning on a seemingly Anonymous-affiliated YouTube account, Facebook is their next target. The video encourages people to download a linked program that they can use to attack Facebook.
This isn’t the first time they’ve threatened Facebook, but if this video’s authentic, it means the threat could be acted upon soon. Other sites they’ve mentioned as targets in the past include the United Nations, Xbox Live, U.S. Bank, Twitter, and YouTube.
UPDATE 4:45 p.m. – The Anonymous-affiliated Twitter account @anonops has tweeted that they, at least, will not attack Facebook. (via PCMag)
