Be careful when you post on Facebook!

And think what you post before you do it on public network...

Teacher compares student to 'orangutan' on Facebook, could lose license - Digital Life

P.S. I've heard about number of cases when people lost the job because of the (stupid) posts on FB.

>.< How could anyone be that stupid? I carefully vet every post I write, decide the appropriate level of privacy, and double check my spelling and grammar before I post. I'm even more careful on Twitter because I have a public account there and both senior colleagues and high profile clients follow me.

It's not hard and you'd hope that your children's teachers would not be this stupid...oh well...

I've also heard of employers using Facebook to see what their employees and/or job applicants have posted.

Any teacher dumb enough to do that is too dumb to be a teacher in the first place. I hope they show her dumb butt to the curb and give her a good recommendation to Mickey D's, which is where she should be...

I was told some even asking for passwords so they could login and read.

I see a lot of garbage posted about co-workers and neighbors all the time. It's hurtful. And shameful.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
