Brokenhearted, drunk and fueled with jealousy after his girlfriend suddenly pulled the plug on their relationship, Joshua posted his ex-girlfriend’s pictures on Facebook, for millions of Facebook users to see and was made legal history for being put in jail for doing so!

Joshua had included in text messages to her on July 23: “I’m going to kill you” and “Dead bitch“. He then posted a photograph he had of her naked in front of a mirror to her Facebook page. Initially, 218 of her friends had access to it, but Ashby then made it publicly available and changed her password. Her friends saw the photo and texted her to tell her.

Top 10 Ways to Take Revenge Using Social Media!

Allow me to begin this post by stating one simple fact: None of us are saints!

Revenge is Sweet!

Revenge is Sweet!

After writing my post on how social media makes cheating easier, and on the day I realized that I have been a victim of an ongoing lie for two years, a friend suggested that I write a post listing the ways social media can help someone take revenge through social media, as a part of my healing process!

Therefore, and in efforts to draw a smile on your face, and share with you some of my evil yet never executed ideas, I present you with the Top 10 Ways to Take Revenge Using Social Media:

1. Publicize Images through Flickr:

As wicked as this may sound, sometimes the pain you feel when betrayed is overpowering and it sucks you into a sick cycle where you feel trapped and you search for any way to feel better. Posting images on Flickr of someone who stole from you or who betrayed your work partnership, with a caption or brief describing what happened, not only has the power to help you heal, but also allows other people to watch out from falling into the same trap!
