It’s a sign that social media addiction is real (via MediaPost):
According to the Athens Banner Herald of Athens, Ga., over the weekend a female student from the University of Georgia broke into a house to use a laptop to check her Facebook account. The perpetrator, who has yet to be identified by name, was discovered by the homeowner, a 33-year-old woman, as she returned from lunch around noon on Sunday. The 18-year-old blond student apologized, gathered her belongings, and left the woman’s house without managing to close her Facebook page — so Athens police know exactly who she is, although they’re not publicizing her name (perhaps to spare her endless social media mockery).
I’m assuming her phone was dead. We’re all aware of the implications that social networking and “text culture” have on interpersonal communication — especially in younger millennials. But perhaps common sense is now something that needs to be taught?
