The downside  of social networks
In March, two stories involving Facebook were highlighted  in the press. In Londrina, Paraná state, a student used the social network to offend a teacher. The case had a negative impact across the city and was reported on the TV news show, Jornal Hoje (Globo). At the end of the month in São José dos Campos, São Paulo state, the local police tracked  down members of a criminal gang thanks to Facebook. In the USA, a thief  published photos of his robbery on Facebook, showing the amount of money he had stolen , and was arrested  by the FBI in September 2011. There are many cases of people losing their jobs or ending relationships because they used Facebook irresponsibly. In 2011 a Chicago airport employee was fired  after offending Muslims  on his Facebook page. In the USA and the UK, Facebook has been increasingly cited as one of the major causes of couples’ separations.
