Facebook and your employer, can they really do this ???
My employer has a new policy about social networking and it requires that every employee be facebook friends with the two top managers and they will be monitoring are accounts. It also states that posting something on FB like " sick of the drama at work" is prohibited. As well as violent and offensive posts. I can't find the paper with the exact wording but if I find it I will post how it was written.
I'm angry. I'm 99% certain that this is mostly targeting a few employees who are friends with customers and have horrible judgment. They talk about work related things when they shouldn't and to top that, they're negative and inappropriate . Even so, I'm mad. My manager made it a point to tell me she tried to send me a friend request but was at home and couldn't spell my last name. I'm not sending her a request. I do not have one co worker or customer or any work related person as a friend on facebook. I never mention work on facebook. Not about my current job or any previous one but it still angers me! It's the principle damn it. Do employers really have the right to monitor your FB?
