Ethics 101

So I recently figured out a way to view the pictures of anyone on Facebook... regardless of if they're in your network, or if their profile is private, whatever. If they have a Facebook I can look at photos tagged of them. This has led me to stalk countless people in the New York and LA areas who I know are friends with/related to celebrities. I've turned up so many pictures of famous people doing who knows what.

Now the question is: should I post these pictures? Some say it's my obligation as a journalist to write about all that I unearth. Others say it's unethical and violates privacy rights basic to every human being. But I mean... I read Perez Hilton daily, how much do I really care about privacy?

What do you guys think?
