Facebook has become a centerpiece in many peoples lives, and that focus is showing in the stories generated by it's users. Here are some of the stories from the last few days:

A man in Rochester, NY, was stabbed by his girlfriend because of comments he made on Facebook. Wait, no, she stabbed him because he friended another woman.

Four teens in Naples, Fl are accused of making death threats on Facebook.

A doctor diagnosed a childs leukemia via Facebook.

A man in Columbia, Ill. is indicted for "enticing minors" on Facebook.

Facebook can be a boon or a bane. Be careful what you do there.
