I read a shocking article today about some employers and colleges asking to see people’s Facebook pages, and insisting on being able to monitor their Facebook and social media accounts. It starts with this quote:
If you think privacy settings on your Facebook and Twitter accounts guarantee future employers or schools can’t see your private posts, guess again.
This is one more caution sign about social media for all job seekers – and anyone who plans to look for a job any time in the future. You need to be aware that ANYTHING you post can be found by a determined person. Employers can be very determined.
