I will be graduating in May with my BSN. I was wondering if I should delete my FB when I start applying to hospitals? I don't have any wild crazy pics on there or anything. Normal appropriate pics of myself, family and friends (sometimes at the bar though lol). I hardly post anything anymore unless it's about studying or the gym or stressed from school. I know employers are able to look at someone's fb. I heard the state of Maryland has banned employers from looking at people's fb. Is this true? Any thoughts would be appreciated
After reading a post on AN about how someone lost their job offer due to FB, I made the following changes on FB: changed my name slightly, changed my email address to one I will never let a recruiter see, removed all past employment history, changed my profile pic to an animal, and went through the privacy settings with a fine tooth comb. I was thinking of deleting my account temporarily but I really like to use it to connect with friends. So anyways, no one can find me now on FB unless they're already a friend of mine and that's just how I like it.
