Cases of facebook may cost you your job

It's no joking matter. Recalling some pasts articles of mine(Social network issues and Network games archievement), it all point back to the balance between your private and working life.

Here are some living cases that someone lost their job because of what they wrote and do in facebook out of carelessness.

Case 1: A worker call sick leave but her facebook status stated otherwise.

Case 2: One person went for a job application permanent positions and he received feedback after the interview that the employer to be read his facebook and come to know he was applying for uni and planning to travel in April. They turned him down for consideration unless he gave up his holiday next week. The employer was in her friend list thus able to read everything about her.

Finally this a classic and foolish case...


So be careful of what you put online. Nothing is really private especial in Social network site.
