I was calm, at first, when I saw that Facebook had locked me out of my account this week. I figured I would just need to change my password, or answer a security question, and the whole thing would be cleared up in a minute. Besides, how important was my Facebook account anyway? Then I read the screen more closely - Facebook wanted me to upload a copy of a government-issued identification, like a driver's license or passport, to prove that I was, in fact, myself. A panicky feeling clenched my chest as I fumbled in my purse.

Baltimore police are investigating how an image that appears to be a murder victim's wrapped body was posted to the Facebook page of the accused killer - while he was behind bars. The image posted to the Facebook page of 28-year-old Jermaine Jackson around 4 p.m. Monday shows a large object on a basement floor wrapped in a sheet and plastic. That's how police said the body of his boyfriend Andre Nicholas, also 28, had been found by officers after Jackson allegedly confessed to his mother that he had stabbed Nicholas.

As reporters huddled Wednesday outside the office of an attorney hired by the woman who claims to be the Baltimore County winner of last Friday's Mega Millions prize, we wanted to know a bit more about her than the fuzzy bits revealed thus far. So, we checked out her Facebook page. Fact Number One: On Facebook, she goes by the name Sheila Paraison, not Mirlande Wilson, the name she has been giving reporters for the last week. (The New York Post uncovered the Facebook page.) Wilson, a single mother from Westport, first told reporters that she had the ticket to a share of the record-breaking $656 million jackpot.

What would it take to get you to pose like a penguin and share it for everyone on the interwebs to see? It's worth contemplating because the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is celebrating the opening of its new Penguin Coast -- which will let visitors get more up close and personal with the penguins -- with a promotion that will culminate with one person winning a lifetime family membership to the zoo.

On Sept. 25, a new Facebook page celebrating a legendary (or infamous, depending on whom you ask) Baltimore party-spot from years past made an announcement: " Bohager's Bar and Grill opened [its] doors on July 2, 1992 and served [its] last customer on October 31, 2004. Twenty years later, Bohager's will hold a reunion for all of the employees and customers who enjoyed the craziness known simply as 'Bohager's.'" The at-times controversial Fells Point megabar - which hosted foam parties, college nights, concerts and was the city's version of Seacrets before shutting down in 2004 - will host a 20-year reunion at the Gameday Warehouse (1400 Warner St.)

George Harman won the Republican primary for Baltimore County executive last month by 20 votes, election officials said after a rare recount. Harman, an environmental consultant from Reisterstown, will face Democratic County Executive Kevin Kamenetz in the general election. "I'm going to focus on open, honest and ethical government," Harman said. GOP rival Tony Campbell requested the recount last week after trailing Harman by 18 votes in the June 24 primary election. Officials began counting about 28,000 ballots Tuesday morning and finished that evening.

A new cafe will open Friday in the Chestnut Avenue space in Hampden that was formerly home to Roland Park Cafe and Deli. When it opens, Cafe Cito will keep daytime hours only, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., but will eventually add dinner service, according to the cafe's chef and owner, David Sherman. You may remember Sherman from Nasu Blanca, his ambitious restaurant in the Riverside neighborhood that served an intriguing mix of Japanese and Spanish food. Sherman said that Cafe Cito won't be like Nasu Blanca, which closed after only two years.

On Monday afternoon, Glenda Mosner was told Munster, her 2-year-old English bulldog, was probably going to die. She told the vet that was unacceptable: “You don't know my Munster!” The doctor may not have, but more than 365,000 people from around the world do. And within 20 minutes of Mosner updating them, they'd kicked in more than $5,000 to help. Munster, also known as “Mr. Fancy Pants,” was born with spina bifida and can't control his bladder. While most dogs born with the condition are put down almost immediately, this pup's Montana breeder didn't have the heart to end his life, and started looking for someone to care for him. Enter Mosner, who'd saved, cared for, and re-homed another bulldog -- Gracie Lee -- with the same condition a year before.

When a person applies for a promotion or a new job, the interviewer is not allowed to ask about their political affiliation or religion. They can't tell the applicant they want to read their mail. So why is there any doubt that employers shouldn't be allowed to force an applicant to give them access to his or her Facebook page, blog or email? Any of these social media sites could easily contain information that, in any other setting, would be protected by privacy laws. We need to move away from the mindset that electronic communications are somehow different from more traditional forms of communication.
