That is actually what I expected. So a lot of these sites have a description section, is there any cause of action there for public disclosure of a private fact. I know there would be if the statement was false. Example: if she had an abortion or something incredibly private like that and I put it on there would there be liability? Or if a girl said something similar about a man. I can't think of anything as private as the woman's example.
I am worried about this because I know she will make a post with details and I am worried one of my friends will get the pictures of her from my computer and seek revenge. She had an abortion and told me it was her choice alone, I tried to stop it and couldn't. We were engaged and needless to say my friends hate her. I am worried they will post the pictures and say she had an abortion and tell the whole story. So you are telling me she can say whatever she wants and my friends could as well or potentially I could say she had that done and I wouldn't be in trouble criminally or civilly. I have no intention to post anything I am just curious as to the liability.
