Facebook newsfeed read: added new photos, (mobile upload) tagged: “Got a cute ‘Hostage’ huh.”

If you were friends of Jason Valdez, you may have seen such a status update yesterday. During a 16 hour hostage stand off, Valdez, wanted on charges of drug possession; real time updated his social network. As SWAT units surrounded the Salt Lake Utah motel where he held a woman captive, inside he made online posting such as:

“I’m currently in a standoff … kinda ugly, but ready for whatever.”

“I love u guyz and if I don’t make it out of here alive that I’m in a better place and u were all great friends.”

A friend even commented back the whereabouts of a SWAT officer outside.

Thank you homie,” Valdez replied. “Good looking out.”

Before being appended Valdez made six posts and added at least a dozen new friends.
