Dont violate your companys social networking policies
Youve probably heard about an employee who was outted when playing hookie because they called in sick but blogged or Twittered about their escapades that same day. But there are more serious reasons you might be let go from your job due to the use of social networking tools. As blogging and social networking sites enter the workplace, so too are corporate acceptable use policies (AUP) being updated to define boundaries for employees, contractors and the company. Data leakage incidents (loss of corporate, confidential or customer information), making inappropriate public statements about the company, using corporate resources for personal uses and harassing or inappropriate behavior toward another employee can all be grounds for reprimand or dismissal. Social networking sites are another way those things can happen and they create an easy digital paper trail to investigate.
