Can Blogging get you fired?

When the bosses are perhaps as narrow-minded as Friendster’s CEO Scott S@$$a, it sure can. Joyce Park, a Web developer living in Sunnyvale, Calif., said her managers told her Monday that she stepped over the line with her Blog, Troutgirl. She was hired early this year in the team which converted the Social Networking platform from Java J2EE platform to PHP due to the kind of traffic the site was generating.

In fact, the Blog only had 3 posts regarding the Blogger’s employer. They related comments regarding the performance of the old Java based platform and general views on Friendster. Interestingly the companies had no policies against such things, nor were the employees given any directions. The decision of the management was sudden and had no comments to make to the media in general.

I support the CEO about this.Your job is private and may possibly entail you to see confidential information - which should not be p@$$ed out to outsiders.

personal opinion! that is not confidential information... atleast as long as there is no written guidelines...

NEWS REPORT:
Companies now demand employees sign a no-personal-opinion-blogging-about-company pact... ;)
