Should we censor our social media updates?
I remember visiting my mom at work and she used to have funny Garfield cartoons about work hanging up… are social media updates the same or taking it a step further?
My personal strategy is to make sure that whatever I put in the status updates would be appropriate for everyone from my best friend to my mom to my boss.
A few of my FaceBook friends that have worked with me or do work with me now. Even if you do not have any co-worker FB friends, you still should be aware that potential employers can see Twitter updates and LinkedIn statuses…
Some Akward Status Updates for the boss:

Not only did you tell the world you were upset about work… You dragged Lisa down with you.
I don’t want to be here, wish it was the weekend”
I am SOOO Bored” (10:34am Monday)
Have you ever posted anything you regretted? Do you think managers should ignore or should we keep our social media appropriate for all audiences?
