World's First Divorce by Facebook

It's bound to happen, folks! Here is ... the world's first divorce by Facebook:

Millions of people use it every day to pass on harmless snippets of gossip to friends and family. But the message Emma Brady's husband posted on Facebook could not have been more devastating.

It read: 'Neil Brady has ended his marriage to Emma Brady.'

Mrs Brady, a 35-year-old conference organiser, claims she had no idea he even wanted a divorce, and only found out when a friend, who read the post on the social networking website, rang to console her.

To make matters worse, she discovered someone else had commented on the site that her husband was 'better off out of it'.

I just recently joined facebook at a friends insistance. Seeing what all my friends write (in all places) just really affirms that they are who I knew them to be. :) But I think I'm pretty lucky to know some neat people.

Anyhow, I LOLed when it mentioned that someone else had posted a "you're better off!" comment.

Facebook is so sick. I found out a few things myself over it, learning some really painful facts through seeing people gossip on a wall. Do people even realize that EVERYONE can see what you write? Do people even care really?
