Yea, my FB page is as uncontroversial and inoffensive as can be. I posted some things for Obama or against Romney, but I didn't go overboard and turn it into Salon.com. It's hard enough finding a job now without me posting job related gripes on a social network.

This, and this.

As far as I am concerned it is my god-given right as a freeborn American to gripe. If they don't want me griping about work, then they shouldn't do any of that farked up stuff I am griping about. Besides, isn't it better to let people blow off steam? Do you really want them to keep all that frustration bottled up inside? Sounds like a recipe for more Postal disasters to me.

What I do on my own time is my business, including griping about my job. It says something about them if they are so defensive about it.

/ Been talked to by HR about griping about work publicly.

It is one thing to have a life outside of work, and I have my share of complaints about my work, but an uncontrolled social media platform is the LAST place I would post anything which could come back to bite me later in life. Spend some time with real friends in person over a beer or something.

And, as a manager in real life, know that I run a search on Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn on every candidate before I make a final offer. Whatever is public...is fair game for me to form an opinion on whether you belong on the team.

The people protected by this ruling will be the last people ever to be protected by it. From here on out, you'll be fired for using too much creamer in the break room, not for your "concerted speech." Behold the glory of at-will employment.

(img1.fark.net conclusion is img1.fark.net.)

That's bad, but honestly given the way we think about work in this country, there's no other option. It's all we can do to get otherwise law-abiding businesses to hire citizens or legal immigrants, pay employment taxes, and pay minimum wage above the table--most of the time.

care to elaborate?

If you are having a rough day on the job, say the boss just rubbed you the wrong way, would you say it's better to vent over a few drinks with buddies and get it off your chest. Or post it on facebook, where your boss can probably see it? Although it would be stupid to get fired over something like that, chances are your boss will make life hell for you from that point on, possibly to the point where you say fk it and quit.

Of course, if you prefer to let the world know that you hate your job because you got burned by the deep fryer at work , or your boss made you clean up the piss covered bathroom, then so be it. I'll take a pint and a game of pool with friend

BigJake: Wulfman: Or you could try not being an asshole. Then you could actually be friends with whomever and post whatever on Facebook.

yeah only assholes have anything other than utter pap vanilla comments or thoughts or opinions that no one could find offensive ever



Just to be clear, I never said that having thoughts or opinions that somebody might find offensive isn't the same as being an asshole. If your personal therapy and catharsis is to have a super secret social network where you post thoughts or opinions that would be offensive if made public, then I do want to suggest that Facebook isn't the safest platform to use, no matter what you set the security as. But it's just a suggestion.

Indubitably: No.

The lesson of the day:

It's none of your fuking bizness, business. Grow up. Focus on good business, not blackmail and extortion of your employees. And that's that.


Your social skills are as stunted as your attention span aren't they you self-responding halfwit.

Now, go ahead and not hold that against me because doing that would be childish and petty, go on, brush it off and act like nothing happened. In real life people remember what people say, if you bash someone they will remember it whether they be some random chump on the net, your friend, co-worker or boss. That's life, get a helmet. There is no blackmail here, no extortion. People trashed their co-workers and word got back to their management who decided they weren't worth keeping around, that's it.

My Facebook isn't a super secret social network - a decent number of folks are in it. But the place for pointless banter, unfunny humor,and nothing interesting ever isn't Facebook, it's LinkedIn.

///Wrong.

care to elaborate?

If you are having a rough day on the job, say the boss just rubbed you the wrong way, would you say it's better to vent over a few drinks with buddies and get it off your chest. Or post it on facebook, where your boss can probably see it? Although it would be stupid to get fired over something like that, chances are your boss will make life hell for you from that point on, possibly to the point where you say fk it and quit.

Of course, if you prefer to let the world know that you hate your job because you got burned by the deep fryer at work , or your boss made you clean up the piss covered bathroom, then so be it. I'll take a pint and a game of pool with friend

RTFA. YOU can't biatch about your boss, unless you get some co-workers to join you in mutinous sedition. Then it's a concerted action, and protected by the NLRB. Do it by yourself, and you're on your own, no-job-haver.

First, you need in-real-life friends who can meet you for a beer after work, on a few hours' advance notice. Fewer and fewer people have those these days, it would seem.

Ten years ago, I was in my mid-30s and had an active social life. Tons of friends, parties every weekend, and a handful of 'em were in the goth scene and went clubbing at Manray on the appropriate nights. Then the great majority of my friends all got baby-rabies in their late 30s and had kids. See you in 2030, everybody, when the youngest of them turns 18 and gets shipped off to college. :-( Even the friends without kids are too overscheduled to be available at the drop of a hat for "Hey, wanna have a beer after work?"

Completely understandable. Now, it's easy to touch base via social media then it is to actually have a face to face. I have kids, and don't like talking about my kids all the time so I can understand that part as well.

I consider myself very lucky. If I called the wife and said a buddy wanted to go for a drink after work, 9 out of 10 times she'd be ok with it. she also knows that if her friends want to get together, then I'll watch the kids.

Damn it! I really like complaining about my job, but I just became my own boss. I guess I'll just have to libel myself online.

*Ahem...*

My boss always gives the worst work to others, and he sucks at hiring people!
...Meh, not bad for a first try. At least I won't be able to fire myself over it.

So what's your policy if a candidate doesn't participate in ANY social media?

Good in theory, but America is still the land of "at will employment" which is just a veil to say "We can totally fire you based on race, sex, age, hair, height, refusing to give your boss a blowjob, you look Jewish, diabetics are bad for insurance, I didn't like you Facebook post, you have dandruff, we don't like white people, your shoes are the wrong brand, you wore the same dress as me, I want to bone your girlfriend who works here too and need you out of the way, you didn't vote for the guy we wanted you to in the last election, you saw something you shouldn't have, you beat the executive director at gold last week, etc etc etc - and get away with it so long as we just don't say so."

That and americans are more than happy to get on their knees and give their corporate leaders rim jobs at the drop of a hat as anything else is socialist. We have a horrible love of authoritarianism in the guise of freedom in this society. We would do much better if we would turn the tables around.
