US Courts Using Facebook To Weed Out Jury

i realise that i never did finish up my series on jury duty, and given that it's been about a year now, i'll have to see how much i remember before any attempts to complete it, which i do hope to but won't be losing sleep over in the meantime.

meanwhile i read about US Courts Using Facebook To Weed Out Jury. now jury selection in america is a much bigger and more involved process than what happens in queensland, so i don't think this type of thing will become an issue in australia. nevertheless, this is another entry in an ever growing list of reasons to be careful about what personal information you put online, whether it be facebook or anywhere else.

the original WSJ article is here.
