    Yes, my employer knows my online name - I told them. Figured that was the easiest and assures they won't be assuming someone else's posts are mine. I post with the awareness that it is public, but am generally very outspoken, so if I have a complaint or opinion they probably already know it.
    If I have anything really sensitive I truly need to vent about it doesn't go online - it's only shared with a fellow nurse I've known forever who does NOT work with me. (and besides, we already know all of each other's deep dark secrets)

    Perhaps our fellow co-workers or even managers recognize us from our posts.

    I don't posts things that I have not already discussed or would discuss in front of my peers at work.

    As for FB, I used to post vague things like "I am so glad that I am home-what a crazy day!", but I have gotten to the point now that I don't post ANYTHING regarding work. I say that I love my life, I mention hobbies, etc., but never work issues.

    I 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.

    I 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.

    I 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

    . . . 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.

    When 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.
