Social media is fun. I’m a heavy user. But, as an HR person, I have to remember that what I say on Facebook or Twitter can affect me professionally.
While I will tell HR people to ignore employees’ social media posts, I will tell them to monitor their own posts. (Trust me, if one of your employees says something horrible anywhere, their coworkers will rat them out and let you know. You don’t need to monitor.) But, HR? Everyone monitors you all the time. If they can’t trust you on the internet, they won’t trust you with their development plans.
