Facebook Email Lands Man in Jail

Social networking landed a British man in jail. Dylan Osborn, 37, had been ordered by magistrates not to contact his wife Claire Tarbox, after harassing her with phonecalls and text messages. He signed up for a Facebook account to look at a friend’s wedding photos, and as part of the signup process, the site sent an automatic “friend request” to everyone on his email list — yep, including his wife.

The next day his wife contacted authorities and Osborn ended up in jail for three days. He said: “I certainly hadn’t intended to contact my wife… I didn’t even know she had a Facebook account.
