            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Annie Reynolds, Magistrate, and Gregory D. Brandt, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (6 pages)

            Miranda Simpson appeals following her conviction of the simple misdemeanor crime of third-degree harassment, contending (1) the State failed to lay an adequate foundation for the admission of the Facebook posts and (2) the magistrate’s finding of guilt lacked sufficient evidentiary support.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the admission the challenged exhibit and the weight assigned to it, and we affirm the finding of guilt for third-degree harassment.
