Most people don’t even know they were victims of identity theft until several weeks after it happens.

Do you blog, tweet, post bulletins or inform people about your current moods and activities online? If so, then you’re part of the worldwide sensation known as social networking.

michael_jacksonFor the last several days we’ve watched in stunned silence as people all over the world took time out of their busy lives to remember Michael Jackson. The King of Pop passed away on the same day as Farah Fawcett, June 25, 2009, making it a date that will be memorialized for generations to come.

Although most of us did not know him personally, Michael Jackson’s music and fame made him one of the most publicly recognizable entertainers of all time.
