Dont post stuff that could get you in trouble on facebook, or atleast sort out the privacy settings

In an ideal world, nobody would be monitoring everything you do, unfortunately privacy and individual rights has gone straight out the window over the last few years

This is something I have ALWAYS disagreed with (employers bitching about facebook stuff).


Facebook is your OWN page, it is OUTSIDE of work. People should have the right to say whatever they want. If I think someone I work with is a total fucking cocksucker, I should be free to say so on facebook without being worried whether I have a job the next day.

You can talk shit on facebook all you want. As long as you go to work and still treat the person the way you should, follow company values, whatever you say on FB should mean fuck all to the company.

Employers typically hire people that they feel would be the best representatives for their company of the applicants they receive. Going on Facebook and being not only stupid enough to have your profile public, but also to talk down upon the company hierarchy in public view? Well, that's just a recipe for disaster.

The company hierarchy is there for a reason. It's one thing to talk amongst friends in a social setting, but to put it on blast via the Internet screams immaturity and lack of discipline and respect for the company hierarchy. Would you hire someone with those qualities being their manager, not their friend? I wouldn't. I absolutely think the people who the company that writes your checks saw fit to put in a position over you deserve your respect, both on and off duty.

Don't like them? Fine. Keep it to your fucking self and between people you trust.

It's simple and most grown ass adults don't understand it: Don't write/post incriminating shit on Facebook. Most people don't comprehend that posting something on Facebook is like posting something on a giant bulletin board you would see in the hallways on a college campus. You post it, it's out there.

If this a hill you are willing to die on, OP? If so, do what you gotta do.



Yeah.... no, she would lose in court.

There is probably nothing in regards to Facebook in their contract, however there most likely is something in there about harassment/disparaging a co-worker etc etc. Making disparaging remarks about the VP (IE calling him creepy etc etc etc) falls under that and that is what will get her in trouble.

Potentially getting fired for harassing the VP is not exactly wrongful termination.
This is not government obviously, it's private sector.

It's simple...what I do outside of work should not be up for scrutiny unless what I'm doing is illegal or puts the company in a negative light. Example...if I go to a casino and do my thing...shouldn't be an issue. It would be an issue if I am on a work-related business trip, stop in a casino, and get into a fight and arrested. I don't have FB or Twitter, partly because I'd have situation where I'd deal with a lot of people I don't know and don't care to know.

Is this a hill to die on? If need be, yes. My company has no regulations in regards to FB or Twitter usage outside the workplace. She's 22 and not necessarily the most mature, but she does a good job for me and her personal life doesn't affect her job. I can live with being called boring because I don't go out and party with them. This VP is being a jerkwad about the whole thing and he is abusing his power. I will not be bullied or intimidated, period.

If you haven't got your posts on private well anybody really has the right to read to it. I don't think anybody should be punished for what work-related things they write on their social media site, though. He should be able to read it if he wants to, but I don't really think he should take action for it unless a post is made where she's planning something. A few negative comments are pretty harmless in the long run.

Still, not having it on private is a dumb move.

Disagreed.

Just because someone talks shit on a fucking social page doesn't mean they are going to be shitty people at work.

There is one co-worker of mine I absolutely fucking HATE and I will rip on him on my page but, when I am at work, I stick to the company values and treat him with respect.

What people do after they are off the clock at work should not matter.


Our HR guy is super company value oriented at work. He has come to Christmas parties with a group of us the last two years (he started October 2011) and he fucking takes digs at people who aren't at the party and it's absolutely hilarious. No one gives a shit. It's off the clock, people don't need to have any company values.

Anyone who judges a person entirely off of a social network without seeing their work ethic is a fucking dipshit. Some company is going to fire a guy who never takes a sick day, is never late, never causes trouble, is basically THE guy driving the company, because he comes home one night and talks about how fucking shitty some asshole at work was that day? That right there is just fucking nitpicky bullshit. Let people say what they want off the clock.

Why? a boss is generally not a friend. Be assed having some knobhead of a higher position judge me on my sketchy weekends and statuses about how i can't get in my dress cause of burger overload and wanting to call the police cause i can't find my wine opener.

I don't think my post even insinuated that.

Co-worker. Subordinate or on the same level. We are talking of a low level employee talking negatively about her boss's boss. There is no comparison. It would be like a football player talking shit about his coach on Facebook, and not expecting negative consequences because it was "off the clock".

You are a representative of the company that you work for, whether you like it or not. Say I worked for Facebook, and started talking shit about Mark Zuckerberg via an alternate public forum. Not only would it look bad for Facebook if people who are inside the company are talking down on the people who run it, but Zuckerberg, also known as the mother fucking boss, would have every right to terminate me.

It's off the clock and most likely in good fun, right? Taking digs at someone for not showing up to a party is different than labeling the Vice President of the company that you work for a certified "creep" in a public forum because he was hitting on your friends, knowing full well that he's the Vice President. A man, hitting on women. Definitely creepy.

Again, don't know where this is coming from. Never even insinuated anything of the like.

I can tell you right now that you and I are just going to agree to disagree.

I'm on the fence about this. On one hand, you are a representative of a business. On the other hand, your work life isn't the only aspect of your being and the thought of work reaching into your personal life is invasive.
