So far, we have discussed Facebook legal faux pas done with intent. But that's not the only way the social network can land you in jail. In 2007, a time when Facebook use was still in its infancy, a 37-year-old U.K. man joined the site to look at a friend's photos. But after signing up, Facebook automatically sent a friend request on his behalf to every email in his address book.

Tooltip Information:Celebrating 50 Years of America's Wild SpacesVideo by:Description: Fifty years ago, in 1964, U.S. President Lyndon Johnson signed the Wilderness Act into law, setting 54 areas aside for federal protection. It opened the way for an American wilderness system that has grown to more than 110 million protected acres in which, the act says, "the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain." More proposed areas await congressional approval, including the Rocky Mountain Front in Montana and the Columbine-Hondo in New Mexico.
