As people flock to the malls on this Black Friday, those of us stuck in the office have enjoyed passing around this video.

Israel Uses Facebook to Catch Draft Dodgers
/via @abcworldnews:

Interesting bit flagged by the folks at the New York Observer — The Israeli military has caught 1,000 women who were avoiding mandatory military service by claiming they were observant Jews.  Their espionage tool? Facebook.
From the article:

The evidence collected by the government ranged from damning to  ridiculous. One woman was caught updating her profile on the Sabbath,  while another made the more circumstantial mistake of appearing on the  Facebook while holding a menu from a non-kosher restaurant.
