More and More employers are allowing use of facebook during work. But it is important to know your employers policies on social media use so that you can stay within the set guidelines.
The biggest mistake employees make when it comes to social media is:
1. Sharing too much information
This is just like the biggest mistake when interviewing.
The key to success here is to Decide What to Keep Private
Even though those lines between our professional and our personal lives have become increasingly blurry, there is some information that we may not want to share with our current or future employers.
· Be Aware of Who's Looking - When you're using Facebook at work, remember that your colleagues, your boss, your boss's boss, and even the CEO can see your profile.
· Update Your Privacy Settings - If you're job searching or working, change your privacy settings. Select the privacy options you want for each section of your profile and for your contact information. Decide who will be able to see your profile information including photos, posts, contact information, online status, groups, wall, and status updates.
· Choose Your Networks - Decide what information each of your networking contacts can see, and what your friends can see.
2. Don’t Check in somewhere if you call in sick
3. Don’t bad mouth a co-worker or your employer
4. Posting inappropriate photos or videos
5. Violating privacy policies or sharing confidential information
