You know, it might just be a good idea
To avoid mentioning work at all on Facebook. Except to praise the place, of course. From CBS News.
There have been cases where Facebook has fast-tracked a career. But I've heard plenty of stories of Facebook sabotaging someone's chance of success. Here are four good reasons to put your Facebook hobby on hold for your job.
If you can't stay off Facebook during work hours, that's an easy tell that it's affecting your job. "Companies need to know that they have your undivided attention. If you are constantly on Facebook, which is easy to determine simply by paying attention to frequency and volume, then a company may have reason to be concerned about how you spend your time at work," says Roy Cohen, career coach and author of "The Wall Street Professional's Survival Guide." If you're "liking" a co-worker's new baby photo between 9 and 5, your boss might see that and not "like" it very much at all.
You hate your boss and vent online
This one seems so obvious, but people still do it. "It's baffling, but millions of employees across America assume their boss doesn't use Facebook. Vent your frustrations about your 'idiot boss' or the 'crazy CEO' and guess what? They'll find out," says Phil Cooke, media consultant and author of "One Big Thing: Discovering What You Were Born To Do."
