As social media (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc.) becomes more and more popular, it intersects more and more with professional lives and careers. We are now even seeing cases of online activity leading to a termination of employment. I’m calling these people the “Facebook Fired.” This blog will attempt to record all instances of Facebook and other social media impacting real world careers. Hopefully this blog will serve as a warning to be careful about what private data you choose to make public.
About the title- “The Facebook Fired” is just a catchy title, but I’m including any form of social media (and even a few poorly forwarded e-mails) that get people in trouble.
