Sibling revenge in the era of Facebook

LONDON, ENGLAND - MARCH 25: In this photo illu...

When I was a wee lass, I liked to torment my two younger sisters. And they tormented me.

As the eldest (and strongest), I tended to win physical fights, meaning my sisters had to be more creative. A sister who shall not be named once hid cat poop under my pillow. I may in turn have dunked her toothbrush in the toilet. She may have then read my diary and tore pages from it in which I gushed about my middle school crush, Mikey. I lived in fear of her slipping those pages into his locker at school. I may have read her journal as well for blackmail material, just in case.

That’s all pretty bad, but this is so much worse (from Sojones via Colin): Revenge, Facebook Style: Brother 1, Sister 0.

    So wrong and so funny is so many ways…

    Ah- given that they’re all minors, and the content- I’d wonder what liability FB faces if the parents pursue this?

    About Me

    I am a writer, reporter, editor and blogger. I'm an editor at Above The Law, where I blog about lawyers, judges, law firms and the legal industry. Here at True/Slant, I write about our changing notions of privacy.

    If you have story ideas or tips, e-mail me at kashhill@trueslant.com. I've hung out in quite a few newsrooms over the last few years. Currently, I can be found in Breaking Media's Nolita office. In the past, I've been found in midtown Manhattan at The Week Magazine, in Hong Kong at the International Herald Tribune, and in D.C. at the National Press Foundation and the Washington Examiner.

    I have few illusions about privacy -- feel free to follow me on Twitter: kashhill. Or friend me on Facebook... though I might put you on limited profile.

    What I'm Up To

    • Staying Above The Law

      judge

      Over at Above The Law, I write about lawyers, law firms, judges and the legal industry.

      We especially like “colorful news.” (Yes, that’s a euphemism for gossip.)

      Check out the site here and my stuff here.

    • Writing with real ink

      While most of my writing occurs online at Above The Law and True/Slant, I do occasionally venture into the world of print.  These are some of the magazines and newspapers that I’ve written for:

      The Washington Post

      Washingtonian Magazine

      Time Out New York

      The Orange County Register

      The Washington Examiner

       
    • Recent projects

      washingtonian issue for tsThe latest (and longest) “real ink” project: the cover story for Washingtonian Magazine’s December issue.

      While I’m usually a writer and reporter, I’m sometimes asked to play pundit. In November, the New York Times asked me to write a mini op-ed for its Room for Debate blog. In December, BBC radio asked me to talk about Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook privacy settings for its Newshour (19:00 minute mark), based on this True/Slant post.
