Photos, wall posts, and everything you ever did on Facebook can be legally handed over to authorities.
Facebook has changed how many of us now communicate with each other. Both businesses and people flock to Facebook every day and often post details about what they’re doing without a second thought.
But sharing all that information can have scary consequences. In a recent investigation into a supposed serial killer, Facebook sent law enforcement officials a 71 page document about Philip Markoff, in response to a subpoena they had received.
The document, now released by the Boston Phoenix newspaper, contains information such as Markoff’s photos, wall posts, comments, and other activity on the site including personal information such as his address, marital status, and IDs of other friends on the site.
The subpoena and final documentation can be seen here, but it’s somewhat frightening to see just how easy it is for your personal information to be made available should the need arise.
