Camera phones and social networking - Should have guessed this problem

With camera phones having become indispensible and social networking migrating to the mobile, the combination of the two is now having some embarrassing side effects.

The naked pictures that a student in Ohio took of her self using her camera phone were sent, by a thief, to all her friends and relations listed under her contacts.

He also used the Facebook facility in the mobile to upload the images to her profile.

One can only imagine how mortified she must have been.

This type of embarrassment will become common as mobiles are targeted by vindictive ex partners and thieves.
