Social media websites such as Facebook are serious business. That is especially true when law enforcement gets involved for one reason or another. Far too many people who believe they are protected by a “freedom of speech” too often forget that type of protection comes with certain stipulations. Just as you cannot yell out “fire” inside of a crowded theater that is perfectly safe without being punished for that action, you cannot break other crimes via Facebook without the police finding you and coming to your door. It is always wise to remember that you don't want to be the next person to make national headlines all because of one regrettable Facebook post.

Still not sure about the type of Facebook post that may or may not get you arrested? Here is the one question you can ask yourself whenever you have a doubt: Would you show the Facebook post in question to a police officer without having any fear that you would be arrested and then face charges? If the answer is not “yes” beyond a shadow of a doubt, then you may want to reconsider pressing the “Post” button. Do not think that being able to edit or delete a Facebook post is a fail-safe if you later regret a post. That sentence or comment may live on forever if somebody grabs a screenshot of it.

You know the acronym. You have probably used it in text messages and on social media websites such as Facebook. “LOL” was no laughing matter for a woman in 2012. Paula Asher, 18-years-old at the time, posted the following on Facebook after she allegedly drove drunk and hit another vehicle: “My dumb a-- got a DUI and hit a car LOL.” A judge, as explained by Wave News, did not laugh one bit about the post, and Asher was ordered to take her Facebook page down. She refused to do so, and that bit of defiance landed her in jail for two days. LOL.

Cameron D'Ambrosio of Massachusetts was an aspiring rapper in May of 2013 when he used Facebook to post some of his lyrics. Those lyrics, according to Rolling Stone, were the following: “F--- a Boston bombinb [sic] wait til u [sic] see the s--- I do, I'ma [sic] be famous for rapping, and beat every murder charge that comes across me.” D'Ambrosio was not seen as an innocent rapper trying to be clever, and he was charged with making terroristic threats. A grand jury decided in June of 2013 that D'Ambrosio was not a serious threat, and the young man was not indicted.
