Facebook Privacy vs. Employee Venting

When an Employee should keep their mouth shut or stay off Facebook

There are those on Facebook who will post just about anything and wonder why it comes back to bite them in their ass. The ones who do this all the time appear to forget that their posts are visible to the world. Nothing is private when it comes to the internet. When are they going to learn this? If you want a private site – don’t friend anyone. That’s private.

I’ve seen those who will get their job back and turn around a few days later and begin bashing their employer. Get real. Do they really think that none of this is going to get back to any of their bosses?

They claim free speech. Would the individual like it if employers began posting on Facebook about how slow of a worker they were or how incompetent they were in their job? I think not. But these people will post about their employer regardless and wonder why they are terminated.

Maybe businesses should claim free speech and make similar posts. Let’s see how these people fare in the job market afterward when all their crap is out there for future employers to see.

Yup, so and so, showed up late again for work. They never work a full week and wonder why they never make their deadline. They’ve never finished on time. How many days off can they take in a month? Is it possible to be out 8 days a week?

My favorite – If they worked any slower, they’d be going backward.

I could come up with many more things an employer could say about their employees.

How about, if your hands worked as fast as your mouth, you’d get your work done on time.

People need to think before they post their vents on social media. Every finger point at your boss will lead to ten pointing back at your faults of imperfect job performance.
