Ever since facebook gained so much popularity and people started posted so much of their life on it some people might have gone to far by posting remarks that borderline slander about their bosses, coworkers and companies they work for. As long as the information is not privileged only to employees at that company, should these remarks be able to be used as grounds for suspension or termination? Its a question asked by many. If it is intentional slander against a person or company than i would say yes. Before facebook if you made unwanted sexual or racial comments toward someone that was grounds for immediate termination. I think its the same thing as if you made sexual or racial comments about someone and spread it around the Internet. Its a new age with Internet socializing and we need to adjust to what modern socializing is now, from what it was in the past. certainly if you call in sick and the next day your boss finds pictures of you partying hard while your sick in bed than that is someone that needs to be answered for just as if you called in sick and that night your boss walked into the same bar you were in. The only difference is how technology and modern age has changed how we socialize Can what you post on your facebook page be used as a hiring decision? Using a facebook page to determine to hire someone or not is almost asking the question "what's the meaning of life" its impossible to prove if what you put on your page was a deciding factor. Is it done, sure, should it be done, maybe, after all a facebook page is designed to show the world the person you are and if a company wants a certain type of person, and your not that type of person than why should you get the job. My best solution is simple, don't put anything on your facebook page, postings or pictures that will form an opinion about you. And don't say anything about someone that you don't care if everyone knows about. Don't say anything that you were not prepared to answer for. Never share your opinion and certainly avoid slander at every cost.
