Teen Facebook post: $80K lost because of Facebook post by teen

A teen's Facebook post cost her parents $80,000. On March 2, The Atlanta Journal reported that Dana Snay posted a Facebook status that got her father in a lot of trouble. Basically her dad, Patrick Snay, recently settled a lawsuit against his former employer. He was awarded $80,000 but agreed to keep the details of the case confidential. By his daughter posting the following message on Facebook, the confidentiality agreement was broken.

"Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver. Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT (sic)" (via The Atlanta Journal).

The teen's Facebook post was seen by her Facebook friends -- which is obvious -- but their connection to the case is not so obvious. You see, Dana Snay's dad worked at Gulliver Preparatory School in Miami -- the school that Dana and her friends attended. Once she posted the status update and people passed it around, Mr. Snay was notified that the school would be appealing the ruling. And the school won.

According to the report, Mr. Snay could appeal but he probably won't. It would cost him a pretty penny to go back to court and so that's the end of that.

The teen's Facebook post is teaching others a very valuable lesson: Sometimes you shouldn't put everything on Facebook.
