Caught up, on super blast. It's the trade off we have for participating in online social networks. and for some, the prerequisite of such online participation can still be avoided when it comes to getting caught. It's usually the photos that get ya. Facebook is one of those social networks that has a tendency to get lots of people caught up. Take Nathalie Blanchard for instance.
