I never deleted my FB. I just changed my name so employers can't find it. And have my settings super private. Say your name is Robert Smith. Do something like Ro Smi?? So far it has worked for me. Well at least I think !! [emoji51]

You can do anything so long as you're smart and decide who gets to see your information.

After seeing coworkers get embarrassed by posting stupid crap on FB for all to see, I learn from hearing their horror stories. Better to use FB as an intelligence-tap and a social platform-boost. Got a sob story? Think real hard before making it public. Same with any kind of **** that's making you angry at the given moment. Been there, done that, don't want to do it again.

Well I friend requested my buildings executive administer and they've "liked" some of my pictures lol Granted I'm a Christian so my profile reflects that. Regardless be careful what you post and who you add.

Wow that is really much, lol. Fired for that is crazy

Well, if they were complaining about traffic on the way to a patient's home, that could potentially be construed as a HIPAA violation. Maybe a bit of a reach, but considering that home health and private duty staff work where their patients live, they do need to be careful about that.

What REALLY angers me these days is the taking of, then posting said photos on Facebook without the permission of those in the photos. I went to a horse race recently with a group of acquaintances and despite telling one lady who was taking endless photos "please don't put any photos of me online" as soon as I got home, my partner showed me a photo she had taken of me on Facebook! I don't have Facebook (my partner does) I don't want photos of myself online at all and made it clear to this woman at the event. When I asked her to take it down, she replied "but it's a nice pic!" and refused! I demanded she take the photo down immediately and reminded her I had told her not to upload photos of me.

Now I wasn't drinking, being silly or hanging out with a 'bad' crowd. All I did was attend an event and before I know it, almost 300 Facebook 'friends' of this woman knew where I had been all weekend!

We can't even go out to a nice event without risking being photographed and uploaded onto social networking simply to make the poster look like they have more friends?? I haven't attended a same event with this woman since this happened since she still can't understand why her actions were unethical. :no:

The law states that there is no expectation of privacy in a public place. Anyone can take a photo and pretty much do with it what they like.

I really agree with this. I have gotten where I refuse to get in group pictures because either my request not to be put on Facebook is ignored or the photographer acts like I'm being completely unreasonable to request it.

The concept of "privacy" is becoming completely obsolete. I really think this is a dangerous and unhealthy development. I don't think my daughters' generation even really understands what it could be like to live in a world where someone wasn't capable of recording your every moment. When I was young, you could make a mistake that was not shared with the whole world and was not preserved for eternity. Now, that's not the case anymore. It's scary in a way.
