Social-networking and rise of crime

Not a surprise really as people on those sites simply do not understand that they scream to the world private information they would not allow their enemy to hold. Criminal law can help, as the case about spam illustrates, but surely education is a better tool and should be a better way to spend the taxpayer's money.
