Jake: Hey man, how did your job interview with company-X go?
Steve: It was going great until they asked me to friend Becky in human resources... I got nervous when I thought about all those pictures from freshman year.
Corey: Yeah, I'm studying at the library, I think I'll be ready for the test.
Sarah: Hey me too. Actually, where are you? This smelly guy near me keeps facebook spying on me and I need to move.
Mike: Hey Nick, so I think my girlfriend thinks I am cheating on her.
Nick: Uh... ok?
Mike: Yeah, so I think she has my facebook password and I think she has been checking my messages.
Nick: So change your password.
Mike: No, I wanna find out if she has been facebook spying on me.
Nick: Soooo ask her, or ask mutual friends to find out.
Mike: Well I can't ask her, then she'll know I'm onto her. I wanna trap her somehow.
Nick: Ummm.... You could just send ridiculous messages to yourself like "you have aids" and see if she reacts... Actually, instead, send yourself a message that a specific family member has passed away, then try to get her console you and maybe you can get her to trip up and mention message specifics? I donno.
