  4. I think these people that did the stuff should have made better decisions and thought a little bit more about that people could take pictures of them like they did and post them on any website that allows you to post pictures and everyone could know about it in a matter of seconds.

  6. I feel bad for the people who posted pictures a long time ago and because of them dont get a job. I also think some people are really dumb and should have thought again before posting a picture that would get them in trouble, like the guy who stole from the house and posted a picture of him taking the money.

  10. That was really stupid of that guy to take that picture and post it on the teenagers wall.
    My uncle was living in Vancouver at the time and was like very far away from it and he could see all the flames and hearall the people. He tried to explain what he heard but he said it was too confusing and that there was to much going on around him. :) And where the people who were doing the riots trying to just do it to the property that belonged to the boston peoples. :0

  15. I think that the guy who broke into that house, stole money and a laptop, and took a picture of himself with the money, then logged onto his own facebook with the same computer, is really stupid. He should know that police can track the computer, aand the accounts that are on it.

  19. The people in this video must not have been thinking straight because taking inappropriate pictures of yourself is not a smart thing to do. If you want to get a job later in life it will be really hard if you are posting inappropriate pictures of yourself online.

  21. First thing I thought of when I was watching the first part of this video was why don't people think before they post! And then I thought... well I don't! So now I know for sure that I'm going to go through all my stuff on facebook and make sure that I think before I post, and I hope other people will to!

  24. People need to think more before they post things or even before they do stupid things. Once a picture is online it can forever remanin online and later on come back and bite you.

  25. Some people honestly have no idea what they are doing. I mean honestly who would post a picture of his\her private area?!?! On my facebook I post just random stuff, but nothing personal, and neither do my friends. But really, i dont get how it ruins someones career from a lomg time ago.

  26. It makes u really think befor u act. People shoulden't be posting stuff like that online,it's just not cool. It can really afect alot of people. Plus remember to check your setings so that only the people u trust can see it.

  28. I belive that some of these people might have actually had a reason for posting these on facebook and many other social websites, some people just want to be known.And others have been influenced by strong emotions such as love or hate, not all of them are just cluelessly stupid mistakes. But yet again alot of them could have just been amazingly stupid, that is a possibility.

      Actually, his name literally is Anthony Weiner. I've heard the story many times, and they even said it in the video. The way you can remember is Anthony Weiner took a picture of his weiner. It's quite ironic.

      I agree with you Mango. He must have had a few drinks before doing that.

  32. Wow it must really suck for people who posted stupid pictures a long time ago and it ends up wrecking their chances of getting a good job in the future and also what people think of you guess you have to really think twice about what you do and say

  35. I'm just 14 years old, and I know what's right or wrong. I really feel bad for the people who posted ridiculous stuff but I'm gonna say that they're "A dumb-ass" (sorry if I'm a bit harsh) because they should look at their Private Settings and see if the things they posted can only be seen by Your friends... They don't even look cool posting dumb things, so I recommend them to stop... Don't be a "Dumb-ass" and do the right and safe thing on posting on your Facebook account...

  37. Lot's of people do stupid thing in ther life time. Most of the times they did not do it on purpose. I know from a riend posting a pic of me and making up a lie about it and it got all of us in a lot of trouble. People really need to think befor they make a move so they dont get their selfs into things such as what these people did. And just remember to alwways check your privicy settings and don't post dumb thing of you and other people. Especilly if they dont want it posted.And just to say those people were VERY stupid to do what they did

  46. Something good about FaceBook is that it helps you connect with friends and family, although you have to be careful about the things you share and or post.

  47. fcebook isent always bad ,some people fnd there future husbnds or wife on . some people find there long lost relatives so its works for me

    ReplyDelete
  48. I think Facebook is a great site to connect with family and friends. And it is nice to post pictures of yourself and friends, but apporiate pictures. For family and friends you can share pictures or videos with them. Or if you are shy to do stuff in person like sing or dance you can post them on your Facebook if you think you would like too.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Facebook can be used in a positive way, for example, the guy who found his family that he had never met before, that connection was made on Facebook. I use Facebook too connect with old friends or talk too famly members that live out of town.

  54. I've watched this documentary before on my television, and i laughed at the whole thing. I do have facebook and i share personal information. I have made other accounts before on facebook to troll people. Not harshly, i am not the type of troll you would think of as a terrible person, pushing people to there limits. I just like to joke around, post jokes, ect ect. But i think this is a really good episode of Doc Zone for younger people to watch. (I watch the show everytime it comes on, i am really into documentarys then any other shows other people my age watch, i think more students my age should watch the show. Then i wouldn't have to feel like i don't want to live on this planet anymore.)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Facebook in my opinion should never have existed. Sure some people have had good things happen in their lifetime because of things that go on, but i am still really dissapointed with the site. The site is okay, but revealing. What i mostly hate about it is the users. I would have to right an entire chapter book to explain my distaste. Jeez, i am really getting off track, well. I suppose i'll just have to say that the Kelly and Kelly part was pretty cool. But i think it was risky, anyone can be a creeper on there. *shiver*

  58. Facebook isn't all bad. Facebook can be used in positive ways too. Facebook can lead to marriges,finding friens and family, etc. Facebook helps me connect with family in differnt towns. Facebook also helps me connect with people in town. So facebook isn't always bad.

  59. FB is a great way to connect with your friends and family and I think that it is sad what happend to these people, but the fact that the guy put a picture of himself on face book is pretty stupid and he probably wont do that again if he ever even gets out hopefully the little ass wont though

  74. Some people are just not very smart sometimes! Do they not realize there will be punisment in the future?! Near or far, it will still likely happen. And the person who took a picture of him stealing money on facebook on the guys profile, well he is stupid! He was probably thinking "oh yea, Im so cool. Im going to post this on his profile so everyone can see" He obviously wasn't thinking that he could go to jail for that? Like whats the point of going when hes not home? May as well go when hes home.. Some people these days just dont think..

  75. Facebook may be a way to talk to your friends and family but sometimes it can be bad too. The only way you would get in trouble with Facebook is if you use it irisonsibly. Just dont post stupid photos of yourself and watch what you post and you should be fine. But take the people writing on here. They are putting dumb things they shouldnt be putting ! Miah.H

    so she made it and all i really did was play a game or two...
    but thats pretty much all i did with it and im glad i don't actualy use it because i might put something stupid up (i prob wont but it is something i worry about D: ) but thats all i do with my facebook.

    i rather just go and talk to the person IRL (in real life) if i wanted to tell him/her anything because the internet is a very dangerous for those who do not use there brain (like the scamers they get ALOT of people) and i personoly have had a virus get into my own laptop (and it survived along with someone elses laptop only 2 survivors of the virus) it was supose to act like a anti-virus and basicly shuts your computer down for good witch made me careful of everything on the internet and i always think before i do anything
