Never give out your Facebook or other Social Media passwords……..

The funny thing about this statement is it is a question that keeps coming up. What right dose an “employer” have to ask you for your passwords? None that is always the answer and you should think about anyone that wants this information. Now if you work for a company that forbids you to be on any of the chosen platforms you should always ask why…. The fact of the mater is this is your personal space & unless you are giving away company information there should be no reason why anyone you don’t want on your page or in your business to have access. The argument will always be are you presenting the right image for the company you work for. I say you would not of been hired if you didn’t. Keep in mind if you work for wall street or other related businesses then you will have to think about not using social media as you could be pulled into situation that could be considered unlawful.

The thing is you have the right to your privacy & how you present yourself dose mater. However you brand yourself remember if the picture you paint is dark and unfriendly or less than family friendly it will hurt you regardless. If you are fired over not letting your company have your passwords or something you post: picture or statement not related to your company you might be able to take lawful action. Just depends on the circumstances behind what was put in place. Our final words are this. If you want to have that great career make sure your social media branding makes you look great & no worries about what is there! After all it is how you are seen on the world wide web……
