A social media tip from the Columbia, South Carolina Free Times: ”If you’re doing something illegal, you might want to keep a low profile on social media. A 30-year-old man had some run-ins with the authorities.

Next time you feel like posting about your illegal activities online, just resist the urge and go to a porn site like everyone else.”
