What Not To Discuss On Facebook

The post that costs. (HT UK Daily Mail)

Pictured above is Stephanie Bon. She made her feeling known on Facebook that she wasn't happy about her CEO's salary. That decision got her canned.

People talk, no doubt. However, in this day and age, you have people trolling for stuff like that and if your employers find out, can lead to you getting pink slipped. They can say you're a "troublemaker" that creates a "negative, hostile working environment". I've seen it happen.

Background Intel:

Aussie News: Stephanie Bon fired for sarcastic Facebook post on Lloyds TSB CEO's £4000-an-hour salary

UK Daily Mail: Bank worker fired for Facebook post comparing her £7-an-hour wage to Lloyds boss's £4,000-an-hour salary
