According to recent research, 1/3 of young people don’t mind if their employers have access to their social media profiles in return for job security. The same report claims that the practice of employers monitoring personal data will become more commonplace.
This report was based on a survey of 10,000 workers all over the world and 500 HR experts, who suggested that personal information from Facebook, Twitter and other social media services could be used by employers to find out what motivates their staff, reasons why people might want to change jobs and to improve employee well being.
The online monitoring by employers is expected to rise over the next ten years. By then, people who are now 18-32 will form 50% of the worldwide workforce, having different attitudes to technology and personal information. Apparently, younger people more willingly share their personal data with their employers, and more than a third of them say that they would be happy to do so.
On the other hand, companies could make use of their employees’ personal data to measure and anticipate performance and retention issues, just like advertisers and retailers using it to tailor customers’ shopping experience. The researchers also point out that this kind of information profiling could even extend to real-time monitoring of people’ health, providing health guidance to help cut sick leave. The companies can be able to acquire this data by providing measurable benefits for people who hand over their information and building trust via clear rules about how information is acquired, used and shared.
There are also critics of this theory. For instance, the distinguished professor of organizational psychology and health at Lancaster University believes that it features obvious pitfalls. Firstly, people are less likely to believe that if they trade off their privacy rights, an employer can ever guarantee job security. Moreover, he doesn’t understand how the employer’s access to an employee’s social media could possibly result in greater motivation or well being of the staff. He thinks that this initiative is a plain case of trying to figure out what the personnel is doing and thinking, which is nothing else but an intrusion into their private life.

|My girlfriend work for lazy boy for about 6 years and she was fired over what she said on facebook about her boss making racial remarks about her. I told her don't worry i needed extra help burning pirated movies and music and selling them in the park while i sold the weed. Since then we have the money to pay our bills and get brand new cars. When one door closes another one will open|
|@1: very amusing|

|@1: Or, you sue them for wrongful dismissal, take their money (probably getting said boss fired in the process), and keep the job. I don't know; maybe things just work differently in Canada.|

|just make up false names if you want to use social media sites,...and just add close friends , the rest just read what your doing ,that is if your stupid enough to show them where you are or tell them im now going for a number 2..lol...lol|
|I've no idea why 86% of Facebook users give them their real|
names, address and telephone cell number. I was able to use
the info to find out everything about them. Oh yeah, I even use
Google maps to locate which building or house they live in. For
the more advance user, you could possible catch someone on
video camera using Google. Scary right?

|@6: It doesn't matter whether I use a fake name or my full name on Facebook, the bottom line is that employers need to mind their own business, Period.|
As times change, employers are intruding more and more into people's personal lives. I often post comments on my facebook page talking about how sh1tty my workday went, and there are many things I despise about my job, so I get it off my chest venting about it on facebook... and if my boss happens to look me up and find me on facebook and reads my comments and gets offended... well, Too Fkn Bad-- Get Used To It-- It's Nothing Personal. What, my boss is gonna fire me for speaking my mind? Go ahead, fire me. Job or no job, I will always speak my mind. Zero Fks Given. lmao
|My opinion is,Anyone that is stupid enough and uses their real info on crackbook,deserves what they get!|
|I don't believe when people sign up for facebook they are considering employers spying. But the bottom line is when you do not place limitations on who can view your posts you are exposing yourself. So don't say anything that everyone can't hear. The suggestion to sue is an excellent one, but one that requires stamina. Those kinds of suits take time and future employers do not want to hire people who will stand up for themselves, and suits are a matter of public record. Most employers do background checks these days, as well as drug tests. Glad you found a way to replace your income may you continue to prosper.||
