How an Employer Might Treat a Facebook Faux Pas

Confidentiality.

It's a big deal in the world of business.

But what's the difference between sharing your opinion and violating your employer's confidentiality?  Or that of a co-worker?

Personally, I'm a fan of not burning bridges--especially in business.  If I have a gripe with someone, I generally discuss it with him or her.  Of course, there are people who choose not to participate in discussion.  So yes, I might gripe to someone else.  I'd like to believe I choose my confidantes with care.

Facebook is not one of my confidantes. Sure, I can acquire a lot of publicity via Facebook.  But I can also acquire notoriety. Big time.

ClaimsJournal.com had a pretty good article on the subject a few days ago titled Facebook Policies Tricky for Employers, Workers you might find interesting.

Your thoughts on the subject?
