Do you think they/employers are watching what we post? - Page 4Register Today!
- Oct 10, '11 by GadgetRN71I don't worry about it. They can't prove it's me posting any given statement.
Obviously, I don't violate HIPAA. My FB account also doesn't list my place of work and I have privacy settings on there. But,it'll be a cold day in hell before I let them dictate anymore of my life than they already do.
- Oct 10, '11 by Lovely_RNI don't think my employer checks AN but I know they check FB for sure. We were told during orientation to not list our hospital as our employer if we didn't want them searching for dirt!
I use just about every privacy feature on FB and I still don't post anything work related.
- Oct 10, '11 by pedicurnI don't post anything about work here or FB.
I cringe a little when new nurses post about their new jobs and the exact unit they have been employed for

- Oct 11, '11 by pockunitQuote from suannaDo you wonder if your employer has a good guess of who you are on AN and monitors your posts the way some employers do on other social networking sites?
. . . aaaand this is why I changed my old account to a new one with NO identifying information. No previous posts to stalk, nada.
I suppose if someone were tracking me down for a bounty they could figure it out, but I'm not that popular.
- Oct 11, '11 by GimiRNWhen I was on here with a previous account (that is no longer used), I had someone figure out who I was. This person asked me if that was my username, and even quoted info from various posts I had made. I didn't have anything bad anywhere, so I admitted that it was me. But I still felt a bit violated, especially when this person proceeded to tell others what my username was. I never posted under that name again. So yes, it is definitely possible to be identified.
