Almost everybody's on Facebook, and for that reason, almost all human issues are immersed within this social web. It's not very new that we hear celebrities in net wars and I must say, some are so shallow they're entertaining. LOLs How about you? Have you ever been in TROUBLE because of FACEBOOK? Please tell us about it..

NO, I've NEVER been in trouble because of Facebook mainly because I think I'm the ONLY person in the world who doesn't do Facebook!!! I have friends who can't live without being on Facebook & I don't want to be like them!!! I'm old enough to be able to remember how to communicate by word of mouth & that's how I still do my networking!!! The ONLY exception to that is my time on myLot!!!!

I have never ever really been in trouble because of Facebook, but there was once that I nearly did. It all happened when I was Facebooking at work, and then I came across this contest that required participants to post a certain slogan as a status update for at least 1 hour to be in the running to win some prizes. And I thought, hmm, not a bad idea to enter the contest since the prizes were quite attractive. So the foolhardy me updated my status with the slogan. After about 5 minutes into that, I suddenly remembered that workers in my workplace aren't allowed to use Facebook during work! If my boss was on Facebook and saw my status update I would be toast! So I quickly logged on to Facebook again and deleted my status update. Fortunately for me, my boss didn't see the update because it was only up for about 5 minutes...... That incident made me remind myself to be more careful next time......

Wow that's quite an exciting experience. In our workplace we are also not allowed to open any social networks at any time of the day and out IT system blocked it already so there's no way anybody's gonna log in on facebook during work hours. I can however open mylot but I guess I'm still not supposed to log in because those IT guys might get me fired. LOLs

Oh yes! It happened just recently(hahaha). At that time though, it was not that entertaining for me because I was faced with the issue of termination and/or forced termination. I had a rough time with my fellow co-worker and thus, being the narcissistic person that I am(give me a break..I felt really down that time), I stated my feelings at my FB wall. True enough, certain remarks were exchanged..blah blah blah. To make the story short, my boss read it. I was greatly reprimanded about it. Thankfully, all was well now.

Hi there vesuvius!!! Well I don't really have any experience being in trouble because of facebook.Some of my classmates though have experienced some mishaps because of the site.There was a time when one of my classmate which also a close friend to me told me that she was in fight with her cousins enemy because that person saw what she commented on her wall. Well I guess it is only a form of miscommunication and some misunderstanding because of the things that they are writing on their walls.I don't often comment on walls and write status on my facebook profile.Most of the time I only play games and spend all of my time there.

I'm on Facebook and many others Social Media services. But I don't think I've ever been in "trouble" on Social Media services like Facebook. So my answer is, No.

No. I have never been in trouble because of Facebook. I don't plan to be either. I have a very low key profile, and I am not always on Facebook all of the time. I don't engage into gossiping and jumping in other peoples issues that they may have. I stay out of mess, so that I don't have to worry about my name being brought up into anything that is negative.

No. I have been very careful with every info I post on Facebook. I have heard of cases when Facebook becomes a tool for trouble like the user being fired or a student caught giving nasty remarks about a certain perosn. I exercise self-control and restraint on whatever I do at Facebook, most especially what I write) since any person can access Facebook for my profile. Besides, Facebook can be hacked and the privacy it offers can be peanuts for the most experienced hacker there is. SO I control myself and kept my dirty linen to myself and not unto the cyber world. The world doesn't need my dirty laundry anyway.

Most likely the twitter became the source of cyber wars within the celebrities. I agree some are so shallow to entertain some issues that are not really significant at all. I can't remember if I have been trouble because of facebook but then this is my source as well when I am fighting with my boss before.

Facebook has never caused me trouble until now. I love Facebook very much and I most time enjoy chatting with my friends reading updates that has been really cool for me. Facebook yeah at times can be hurtful when someone sets status something bad about you. Other than that to use Facebook is really awesome

At present the problem for Facebook is I can't login it here. Because this website is blocked in my country and I don't think it is reasonable. It is just a stupid rule. I love China

I have had a few facebook wars. It seems that I am too opinionated for some people and they either pick an argument because of something I say or they think I am talking about them. It doesn't bother me too much. Makes me laugh to realize just how petty and childish people can be in a heated discussion. Sometimes a healthy debate is fun too!

Not in trouble but what I hate there is that many people try and take out their innermost feeling on their status updates that gets really irritating. I feel like commenting and giving them a harsh comment but then I stop myself.

yes, i was. i posted quotes and some shallow creature who i had a rift with gave meaning to the posts. that woman shamelessly created and twisted stories about me because of those quotes misinterpreting it as my way of posting the quotes intended for her. because of that, some others were involved. i blocked them all.

Few months ago, I began texting with a girl. Just friendly. I accepted her as friend on facebook. We continued texting to eachother and chatted via facebook. One day my girlfriend saw that I was chatting with her. I told her that she was just a friend, I have met via the internet. She didn't believe me, so she chose to broke up with me. I'm seriously when I say, that she was only a friend.
