///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

ronaprhys: Which is why it's a good idea to keep your profile as locked down as the idiots at FB will let you, don't use your work email addy nor post where you work there, either. On top of that - no friending folks from work.



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

skinink: But I have no idea who she's friended on there so who knows who reads my stuff.


that's why you 1. never friend coworkers, and if you do, 2. set anything you say or do to "friends only"

NoMessiahInHere: 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.

Indubitably: skinink: 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.

*hint-hint*

*wink-wink*

*nudge-nudge*

Hey, grow up, employer.

People have, and should, have lives outside of their work for you.

Get over yourselves.

And that's that.


"Hey Bob, who are we going to promote to that vacant management position?"
"I don't know Bill, there's two good candidates Doug and Phil."
"I think they both do good work but man do you see Phil rag about people and work all day on twatter?"
"Yah that two-faced douchebag grins int out here but the second he gets home its nothing but biatching about work."
"F that whiny drama-lama coont, hire Doug."
"Sounds good."
