BronyMedic: Simple Rules for Facebook:

1) Do not post ANYTHING about your job, or what you are doing currently on it. Don't even be vague. (Ex: Hey, you guys know a good place to eat in X town? I'm headed there with a patient now.)
2) Do not post ANYTHING that could remotely be considered a HIPAA violation. That even includes liking other facebook friend's posted photos of their own family from your work.
3) Do not post ANYTHING about your personal feelings about a coworker. Actually, you know what? Some things are better kept to yourself.
4) Don't post racist, homophobic, sexist, or politically offensive material. If you have fringe or conspiracy beliefs, keep them to yourself.
5) Always remember the first amendment protects you from the Government arresting you for your beliefs. It doesn't protect your employer from firing your ass for being stupid.


FTFY.

A friend from college has been slowly melting down in Facebook over the last year or so. We've all attempted to get him the help he needs. Seems he has been diagnosed with some sort of mental illness, can't be unsupervised with his kid, etc. Sadly, short of being arrested and forcibly detained, if he's not willing to admit he needs help, he ain't gonna get it.

But I'd be lying if I said it wasn't darkly fascinating to watch unfold. He's very open on Facebook about his proclivities (fat chick pr0n), paranoias (KKK burning crosses across the street) and political beliefs (fark tha police, legalize pot, Obama will help me get custody of my kid back).

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Facebook is great for reconnecting with chicks from high school. What's crazy is that many of them are bored housewives who would be easy to hook up with. I'd never do that because destroying a marriage over a piece of ass is contemptible, but it's just Airtel that the opportunity is there.

If I was married and my wife was active in Facebook, I'd be a little concerned.


Farkers have read of your love for banging females with mental health problems. Given half a chance you'd surely bang a married girl but that would just make her appreciate what she has at home.

Carousel Beast: I'm not on Facebook at all, though I have a basic grasp of its operation. BUT, I cant for the life of me figure out why liking a post would be a violation of HIPPA. Help me out?


If you "like" a post that is a HIPAA violation, such as a picture or personal patient identifier information, HIPAA and Corporate Compliance consider you a party in the spread of the information because Facebook shares those likes on your wall with anyone. In the case of libelous or slanderous information that violates HIPAA, you're seen as giving it further legitimacy or support, even if you had no physical contact with the patient, or even were in the building at the time.

CapeFearCadaver: Bullseyed: You can't delete Facebook accounts, so we know you're lying...

Meh. Deactivated. But go ahead and call me a liar if that makes you feel better :)


So you're claiming that you didn't know there's a difference between deactivated and deleted?

DMZ DEATH: Mixolydian Master: What Facebook disasters may look like

It's down to me and a goatherding 12 year old boy in Bangladesh that don't have Facebook.

No, youre not alone. I deleted my account ( although it never deletes). Im convinced of Facebooks evil. Ive seen people divorce over it, familys' stop talking to eachother, ive even had a girlfriend cheat with a guy she was talking to on there. All the shady info stealing scams on there. And just wait until the facial recognition software they have is up and fully functional. Gonna love being "tagged" in some random persons photo that you just happen to be in the backround of. I just feel alot better about life being unplugged from that crap.


Never had one, never will.

A certain healthcare system in our area fired 19 NURSES (which takes an act of god, Normally) because of facebook shenanigans. Those nurses had their careers destroyed simply because they "liked" a facebook post that was a HIPAA violation.

If you've never gone through a HIPAA accusation or investigation, it's almost as scary as the law showing up and saying you're a person of interest. Having Medicare program exclusion hung over your head is humbling.

My Facebook 'guilty pleasure' is watching most of the fundamentalist evangelicals I know, slowly lose their minds. One or two of them have successful marriages and go on to raise nice families and lead a normal, middle-class existence. But other than the crackheads and trailer trash, it is this singular group that has proven to be the poorest educated, most racist and the undoubtedly the most ignorant group of people that I know. A few rely partially on some government assistance, but in the majority of cases, most are solely dependent on the medical, educational and social service programs that are all 100% government sponsored. They decry the perceived abuses of the 'welfare queens' and champion the causes of the the super wealthy. It is ALWAYS the ultra-religious wingnut that white knights for anti-union, cutting pensions and worker benefits even if it is THEIR OWN benefits and retirement funds their 'conservative' representatives have targeted. I've said it before, but these people are so stupid, they would stand in line all day, for beheading, if their preacher or local official told them it was 'God's Will'.

I love to watch someone lose it on Facebook as their life goes down the tubes.
For some reason, these idiots always end up becoming God freaks when it's all over...until they melt down again.

It helps to have lots of rednecks, baby mama drama, and generally people with lack of self-control on your friend list too.

Sad tag? I can only assume the Obvious tag simply exploded into many small pieces from the sheer obvious obviousity and obviousness.
