Who Wants to Get Fired?

Here’s a quick lesson in social networking privacy:

  • Public means anyone can read what you are posting. Like your spouse, the police, your boss, etc. They don’t even have to be a member of the social network in question.
  • Private means that only certain people can read what you are posting. You get to decide who these people are.

WeKnowWhatYou’reDoing.com is a collection of people who don’t seem to understand the difference. Under headings like Who’s taking drugs? and Who wants to get fired? it lists posts to popular social networks that should probably not have been made public.

    Surely they need to be careful, retweeting or reproducing could perhaps be seen as publishing and result in a libel action.
