Like most journalists, I use Facebook primarily to promote my stories, network with fellow scribes and look at pictures.
Im not much of a sharer.
No political opining, religious rants, relationship info or hangover confessions.
My friends dont always follow the same guidelines.
Here are recent status updates that have made me laugh, wince or wonder if its time to click unfriend.
I rarely comment but if I did...

After Toy Story we decided to play Spring Break, eghhh. It started with a simple 12 pack of Coors and ended with a bottle of Patron (tequila) at 2 a.m. Not good, not good. I have the meat sweats today.
Not sure what the meat sweats are but they sound scary.

The social networking site promises to help you connect and share with the people in your life. It doesnt mention that status updates and comments have led to arrests, firings and looking like a complete fool. You have been warned, my friends.
