Detailed by Atlanta’s WSB-TV news station, University of Georgia freshman Chelsea Chaney is suing the school district of her former high school after a photo pulled from her Facebook page was used in a district-wide presentation on what not to do on social media accounts. 17 years old at the time, the photo shows Chaney wearing a bikini while posing next to a cardboard cutout of rapper and singer-songwriter Snoop Lion. In addition to the photo, the Powerpoint slide included her Facebook profile name underneath the photo and the title of slide was “Once It’s There, It’s There to Stay.”
It appears the presentation was referencing the dangers of posting written or visual content online that could potentially be damaging to someone’s reputation. The slide mentioned tools that could locate old content including Internet archive The WayBack Machine, cached pages stored by search engines like Google and search engines within social media sites

"The school claims that the choice of the picture was completely random and chosen by Curtis R. Cearley, the director of technology for the Fayette County Schools"

I wonder how many bikini-clad teens this pervy guy had to look at before deciding which one to use in the presentation? :unsure2:

Two million seems a bit high, but the school system does appear to be in the wrong here - though I applaud their intent, they were a tad off in the execution....

It's just an ordinary looking FB pic by an ordinary looking girl. She may already have been fully aware of the risks and so that's her choice. The school may say they were just trying to make a random point but what they did was target and vilify a student. That sucks. Someone should get the boot.
