The following was supplied by the North Canton Police Department. It does not indicate convictions.

Editor's note: The following information was provided by Lee Spencer Photography. Lee Spencer Photography's annual Picture Party event to benefit Wishes Can Happen is now in its fourth year.

Community Editor Amanda Harnocz wants to interview the people behind the pages everyone in North Canton 'likes.'
Do you operate a Facebook page for a local organization, group, business or school in your community? Then I want to talk to you. But first, a quick introduction. I'm Amanda Harnocz, a community editor for Patch. I'm a Facebook and general social media junkie and recently I was put in charge of managing social media sites for many of the Ohio Patch sites. (I know, lucky me! Right?) I'd click "like" on that sentence if I could ... Anyway, I want to do more than share your information on our Patch Facebook pages, I want to feature the person behind that page. I want to talk the operator about why the page was started, how your audience is growing and what types of things you like to post. I plan on doing several features like this in the …

Facebook's terms of service haven't changed, but your cover photo may have.
Facebook cover photos have been disappearing recently, but a spokesperson says there aren't any changes to its terms of service. When Facebook users add a cover photo they are prompted with this message: "Pick a unique photo from your life to feature at the top of your timeline. Note: This space is not meant for banner ads or other promotions. Please don’t use content that is commercial, promotional, copyright-infringing or already in use on other people’s covers." The exact reason why cover photos are disappearing is a mystery. "It could be due to a copyright violation or that the photo was deemed too 'promotional.' Although Facebook removes the photo from the cover position, it doesn’t actually delete the photo itself," according to …

Jojutlas Mexican Grill owner turns to social media for assistance in tracking down thief.
Jojutlas Mexican Grill owner Gary Hulett is using social media in an attempt to identify a man captured on surveillance footage stealing tips from a jar on the restaurant’s counter Thursday evening. At about 9 p.m. Thursday – not long after the theft occurred – Hulett posted this on the Jojutlas Facebook page: “To the guy in the Colts jacket that just stole my staff’s tips tonight at 8:12 p.m. out of their tip jar, we have you on video and we are putting it on Facebook." Hulett made good on that promise, posting the first of two videos within an hour along with the message, “Does anyone recognize this guy? He stole my staff’s tips tonight. I have a second video but it has not uploaded yet, coming soon.” The first video shows a man entering…

"Facebook is our escape. For a few hours, we can hide behind that Mac and be whoever we want to be."
Facebook. Some people believe that it’s “of the devil.” I’m serious. I’ve actually heard those words come from their lips. And I think: Hello?!! Facebook is nothing more than an electronic medium. A neutral entity. A tool. Tools can be used for productivity or as weapons. This has always been true. It’s not Facebook that gets us in trouble; it’s our humanity. Just this week, I vented and posted. Within the hour, my words came back to bite me, in the form of a text. “Friends” aren’t necessarily our friends (don’t expect confidence!) and those whom we’ve "removed" miraculously are able to decode even the most encrypted messages. Some things are better left unsaid. Yet, I still believe in self-expression, “To thine own self be true,” and all …
