Hiding Messages in Your Facebook Pics

We have no idea why you’d ever secretly embed a private, password-protected message into a JPEG and then post that image on Facebook. Unless you’re in the mob. Or it’s your mistress’s birthday. Or because you discovered this Chrome plugin, which does exactly that. And because, hey, why not.
