I often jokingly refer to Facebook as ‘brag book’ since we all use it to share favorite photos and stories.
But there is such a thing as oversharing.
Ask Isaiah Cutler.
Cutler and two teens robbed a local Pittsburgh market of $8,000 worth of cash, cigarettes, candy and checks. An hour later, he felt compelled to share pics of them proudly displaying their stash on his Facebook page.
Now Cutler is in jail, and his friends have been charged in juvenile court.
Cutler’s family, meanwhile, is changing his Facebook privacy settings.

If you read The Egg with any regularity, you know I was in Vegas last weekend. I worked. I gambled. I came home.
Or so I thought.
Recent photos on Facebook have revealed that I not only stayed in the same hotel as a good friend and former boss –we worked together almost 20 years ago — but I unknowingly met and spoke to his then future daughter-in-law in the elevator.
What the wha??
We were all staying at the Aria Las Vegas. I was leading a workshop at a conference. When I spoke to Britt — I didn’t know her name at the time — she told me that she was getting married on 9/10/11.
She was all smiles, of course. I complimented her blonde updo and wished her all the best.
It was nice to think of weddings as I went off to work.
Little did I know — until I spied the photos today on Facebook — that I knew Britt’s future husband and in-laws. Had worked with her future father-in-law for three years. Could have scored an invite to the reception, at the very least.
It’s a small world, after all.
