It (Still) Isn’t Okay to Slam Your Boss on Facebook

Filed under technology, work

No matter the recent court case and settlement of a fired worker from slamming her boss on Facebook.  It still isn’t okay.  Do you really have the time or resources to go through an exhaustive court case to prove a point: that you were right and your boss was wrong? As a general rule, don’t […]

Okay, read that again.  If you’re not noticing the grammatical error, you’re not alone.  It should read: YOU’RE A Great Role Model The confusion between YOUR and YOU’RE is most obvious on Twitter.  I would like to believe that the use of YOUR for YOU’RE is an attempt to conserve characters.

Without hesitation my answer is yes.  A tech detox.  Sounds like an anathema to the “always plugged-in,” bloggers, and social media enthusiasts everywhere.  But we’re all in need of a break.  It struck me after reading a great post on a friend’s social media sabbatical.  He talked about missing the richness of real conversation with […]

Interestingly trending on Twitter was #thingblackgirlsdo. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. But decided to take a look at the trending topic. What I saw was not so much good, too much bad, and a hell of a lot of ugly. So the black girl in me wanted to change the conversation to something […]

Question of the Day: How Much is Too Much? Sharing on Social Media

October 26, 2010 by  
Filed under technology, work

Interesting survey from Lawyers.com (h/t @youngmoney) on the oversharing of personal information on social media.  I’m all for sharing, but I wonder how much is too much.  I tend to be much more conservative than my peers when it comes to sharing my personal information on social media – unless I think it can be helpful to someone.

Filed under job loss, work

With the unemployment rate teasing 10 percent, you would think that those of us with jobs would do our best to keep it. If you’re going to screw up on the job, there are about 100 people more than willing to switch places from the unemployment line. So it is particularly frustrating to hear a […]
