Is it the Company’s Buisness?

Standard

During class yesterday, we watched a presentation about social media and what it has to do with Public Relations. The presenter said she was going to pull up some of our names on Google, but then after looking us up prior to the┬ápresentation she changed her mind because she did not want to embarrass us. That got me to thinking…When employees have their own facebooks, twitters, etc., does it ever make the company look bad with things they post? People always say to “Be yourself”, but that has me wondering if you can really do┬áthat with social media when you are representing the company you work for. On Facebook, you are able to put the company you work for out to the public, so you have to be careful what you post because it will reflect on your employer.
