Before you spout off about your Boss on Facebook...

I have seen so many people run into issues when posting on facebook.

Many are caused when they post negative comments.

A person I know reamed his current Boss up and down in a very long rant with much name calling.

He was ratted out by a co-worker.

The Boss read the rant, called him into the office and fired him.

Said it was because of 'job' performance.

Now, this was a decent job.  Yes, he may not have liked it perfectly, but to use public forum like that may have also ruined his chances at a new job.

 

Before you spout off about your Boss, maybe you should make sure you have a new job.

 

It really boils done to this....

 

If you can't say something nice...TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sooooo true! A good way to vent is to write it, but sleep on it and then decide if it is worth posting when a clearer head prevails.

William Feela, Once you put something on a social media site it is out there forever, some people just don't get that!

Ok so ranting about your boss is just palin dumb unless your family owns the buisness.  How can you  have an employee who is not the least bit loyal to you? And how can you work for someone  that you do not respect????

So true!  In the heat of the moment one can really screw up.  Once it is on face book it's done.

People get so involved with their online persona that they sometimes lose their common sense

Facebook can be a wonderful social media tool.  However, for those with kamakazi fingers it can shut a whole lot of doors.  I've seen it happen with employment.

Hello William Feela 

Absolutely - if you can't say anything nice, turn off the computer and stay away from social media altogether!

What we say on Facebook is forever . . . . Think about it before you post it.

Good luck and success.

William,  I don’t count the number of times I bang on my keyboard and then delete what I wrote.  My intentions are always to be kind.  As you know, there are some Jack Holes in the world that challenge that.  That is when I need to step back and away from the computer and the phone.

My nephew lost his dream job because of a post he had on facebook  the potent employer told him so much

Posted by Vern Eaton, Realtor 651-674-7449 over 1 year ago

I always enjoy the number of people who are foolish enough to go on a rant about their employer during a job interview.

A good warning to me to not be the next victim of their unhappiness and discontent.
