I don’t know when people are going to learn that Facebook can ruin your life. I see everyday how people go on Facebook and just chronicle their whole lives for the world to see and just say anything. You cannot do that! When you apply for a job, employers are doing more than background checks. I work in Human Resources and recruiters literally go online and google you and if your social media pages are public, OMG, they can make a decision on hiring you based on some of that stuff alone. If you’re posting half naked, drinking, and smoking pics, or colorful language posts, all of it can be used against you. Heaven forbid, you have an all out argument with someone about a man or a woman on Facebook. I’ve seen it all which is hilarious and people are just going to have to learn one by one. It is free speech BUT people can base opinions off of you and that’s not against the law unless you can prove it somehow.
This guy from Florida is learning that his free speech post was looked at by his employer right now. He lives in the United States but works over in the U.A.E. While he was on leave, he took to Facebook and make some bad remarks about his employer which is illegal in the U.A.E. Eventhough he is a U.S. citizen, he has employment with the U.A.E. employer and is held to the rules of their land. He is basically facing 5 years in prison over there and it’s his own fault.
Check the story out and tell me what you think about it.
