11 Legal Issues Social media as evidence in an employment lawsuit is an area of the law that is, to put it mildly, unsettled. A recent decision by a Pennsylvania state court weighs in on the side of parties seeking to discover information contained on social-media sites of other parties. In the case of Zimmerman v. Weis Markets, Inc., No. CV (Pa. CP May 19, 2011), the court held that a person who voluntarily posts photos or information to a social-networking profile has no reasonable expectation of privacy in those posts that would prevent their discovery.

13 Do’s Update your security settings. Keep track of your friends and what they post and tag. Pause and Think before posting. Include a link to your resume. Start a professional Blog.

14 Don’ts Post about clients or employees Post statements that would reflect unfavorably for the Youth Center Discuss operations, restraints, etc Link with former residents Compromise your security

15 Common Sense?

16 - Check and update your privacy settings regularly - Read the Facebook Guide to Privacy

17 - Sharing on Facebook – Customize Settings - Risk of “Friends of Friends” - Risk of identity theft (birthday, family member names) - “Checking In” (professional & personal) Month/Date ONLY Do you want people to know you’re “here” or not at home?

18 - Customize for “Only Me” - Why share? - Would you put it on your resume or job application? - “Like” right to your Bio and Interests

19 - “Tagged” photos (PA school teacher) - Can you trust your “friends” discretion? (photos/posts/check in) - Recent Tags Top of Profile

20 - Do you know Facebook’s default settings? - Have you checked your profile lately?

21 -Allows third party applications to access information that you make PUBLIC

22 - Risk info being leaked/stolen - Info through friends allows friends apps access to your info - Games info (respect) Uncheck everything

23 - Dec 2009; “Publicly Available Information” (PAI) makes everyone disclose full name, profile picture, gender, networks - Worried? Scrutinize info you disclose

24 - Search; friends only makes “search” useless (wise b/c former clients?) - Friends Only v. Friends of Friends – increased exposure/friends “circles” - Specific People option

25 - Increase “privacy” of personal information - Available – very specific high exclusion, Hide – very specific low exclusion

26 Check yourself before you wreck yourself

27 - Balance test: Mom, future employer, current manager, company CEO

28 -“Friends” with a JPO? With a former resident? Should they be able to access the same information as others? - Are your “friends” friends with a JPO or former resident? How does this impact your privacy? (friends of friends)

29 - Chat function; scams from “compromised” friend account

30 - Poor choice of a friend; remove “tag” immediately! - Daily monitoring of profile - Can not prevent friends from manually tagging you

31 - Rouge Applications; trick you into giving them access to your profile and post a link on your page - Drives traffic to revenue-generating survey scams - If you “allow” ; brief video, survey, message posted on your page, personal info out, commission

32 - If infected; remove from News Feed, revoke access (apps/websites), edit profile (likes/interests)

33 Did you know???

34 Yep, this too…

35 Parting Thoughts Be thoughtful with privacy and posts Be mindful of your role as a child care worker (higher “public” standards) Know your friends Check/Update your privacy settings often Remember internet interactions are FOREVER!
