    @ Richie,
    tama ka dyan. maraming mga mag asawa ang mabubuking sa pag upload ng pictures pa lang. maraming mag sweetheart ang ma-tempt at mag away hahaha! ingat ingat.
    Pero alam naman natin na tayong lahat ang nagbibigay ng power sa mga social networking sites na ito. Dapat lang be responsible hahaha!

    This is not a good news to me, facebook will enhance itself therefore, a lot of irresponsible posts will rule and therefore, expect a lot of trouble too hehehe!
