SoFlo Using Social Media -

The Miami Herald is changing
its internet commenting system . . .

"Readers who want to comment on stories will be required to log in using a Facebook account... The cloak of anonymity stifles respectful debate. We believe this change will encourage conversation - but in a safer, civilized space."

Social Media is a safe place?

A South Florida man used Facebook to recruit a local 16-year-old girl to "join da team" and work for him in the flesh industry, telling her she could make as much as $3,500 a week for selling her services, according to court records.

Meanwhile, WPTV is reporting that Facebook may be working on an app that tracks users' locations, but James Ball is not convinced this concept is so nifty.
