Should employers be able to use Facebook material when deciding whether or not to hire someone?
I cant choose a definitive side on this issue. Does anyone have any thoughts?
I'm sure you'll get mixed answers here but I don't think Facebook should be used when deciding to hire someone. I understand that Facebook reflects a lot of your personality but it is not a good representation of your professionalism. I don't think it is fair to compare what people do in their personal time with their work ethic and abilities.
Yes, they should because all of the information on Facebook is posted PUBLICLY by you. You are the gatekeeper to the information, so if there is something on there that you are embarrassed by or don't want an employer to know then the honus is on you to remove it (or better yet, not post it in the first place) from the public sphere. Employers have an obligation to find the best employees for their organization possible, using any available resources. Just be smart and keep your private information private.
I see this side of it too. In the evolved technological world we live in it is hard to justify not using social media to learn about others. It is there to connect with and learn about people. If a teacher was seen on Facebook getting drunk, well...
Absolutely. Anything you post online if fair game. Do keep in mind every employee in a way is the face of the company. And just about any employee can hurt a company's reputation.

At the moment, we have a blanket law concerning smoking in public places. Bars and pubs are smoke free, which is nice (although now you can smell the wee and sweat), but the streets are punctuated with clusters of smokers, so you are obliged to inhale smoke if you happen to be having a...

Okay, I know this is silly, maybe even stupid, but I got this comment on a hub of mine about Silly Bandz a few days ago and I don't know if I should delete it or approve it. I usually have no problem doing either, but this one has me stumped. It's obviosuly written by a kid, just how...
