Mis-using Social Networking

No sooner did Google co-founder Sergey Brinn rave about social network Orkut during the 2Q05 earnings call then Orkut popped up again — this time in a story about a drug bust in Brazil. Police arrested 10 suspects, alleging they used Orkut to sell drugs. Just a reminder that any technology that can be used for good can also be misused and social networking is no different. Wonder if it actually made it easier for the police. (via Marketing Vox)
So far, Google’s been able to separate itself from the content on its services but that’s going to get more difficult.
