    I'm on FB for the sake of my family so they can see photos and stuff, but I don't post any useful information for a would-be stalker to use against me. Most I do is say "GO DAWGS!" on on Saturdays in the fall. This story shows why giving people minute-by-minute updates can lead to personal disaster. Ah, the age of narcissism.

    She probably had her Facebook settings to private and believed that no one except her friends could see her posts. A lot of people get a false sense of security through that. It sounds like she was being stalked by "crazy guy" it's possible he never even saw her post but was watching her place anyway. Leaving her windows open when she knew there was a crazy guy wasn't the best move either. The article also said she lived in an apartment, I'd never leave the windows open in an apartment at night. On the other hand, I grew up there and wouldn't have thought twice about the area. I know times have changed and bad happens anywhere but I was shocked when I saw the beginning of the article!

    The ONLY reason I have a facebook account is there are 3 family members with terminal medical conditions (not in the short run but within a couple years) and it makes disseminating information easier.

    Email via distribution lists is about as easy as it gets. And it's not public, via accident, naivete or corporate (FB) policy.

    If you cautiously use FB, make sure your family is on the same page about posting carefully. I once looked someone up, who had a very "private" FB page by figuring out who his wife was (never met her) and her page was very public - such that I was able to find him.

    That post if you did shoot an intruder would get you prison time in probably every state I can think of.
    Right up there with getting in an argument and daring the guy to come tell it to your face,you shoot him when he shows up and try to claim self defense
