untrusted.

They don't seem to have a problem with sexual photos of children, mutilated animals, suicide victims and live videos of torture and killings either.

Sooner people stop feeding facebook/twitter the better... facebook is the worst but the double standards on twitter is just as bad... and tax evading policies will be similar on both

Facebook removal policy is wrong at the highest level once I reported a picture of loads of dead children a suicide picture of a hung girl a picture of animal sexual abuse amongst other things. I always get a message back saying after reviewing the picture it didn't violate our FB policy. Yet a mother feeding a baby dose and is removed every time.

Facebook is an advertisers dream, I cant believe how many people are suckered in to it! Share a photo of your mum or kids and then view it with an advert!

Just give it up, its turning in to a perverts paradise!

Although I agree Facebook needs to up it's game regarding indecent photos and other issues

Having the BBC question Facebook about paedo material just seems wrong on so many levels

PhilPhil it does in a way considering what happened at the BBC. But the alternative suggest going forward it's best they ignore stuff like this and turn a blind eye - which is not good.

Facebook is more trouble than its worth in my opinion. I don't use it anymore but I always found it amazing how much people were prepared to post to give virtual strangers a glimpse into their lives with hundreds of pictures of themselves, kids, GPS tagging info of where they are or have been etc.

Known round our way as 'Fakebook' or 'Faecesbook'.. terrible site.

I don't think there is anything wrong with Facebook as such its some of the users that are need help. My feed is pretty scant as I block anything I don't want to see.

I carried out a round of 2nd interviews last year, I was pretty much decided on a candidate, had a quick look on her open facebook, from what I saw there she wasn't getting any job offer. I couldn't personally give a fig about what she did in her private life, but she displayed shocking judgement to put those pics on Facebook.

Amongst other things that are not appropriate for a wider audience including lots of pics of the candidate snorting huge lines of posh.

It's the Facebook liars that gets me laughing you see a picture of them on Facebook then see them a day later it's like wow what if you go missing? How could we find you if you look like Angelina Jolie on Facebook and a potato in real life.

Blimey - what a stupid thing to do, let alone publish on FB!

I was so annoyed, she was a great candidate on paper, and had impressed at the two interviews to the point act I was ready to make her an offer, then she blew it due to a total lack of judgement.

Be careful who you tell this too..

I know of someone who was sacked for doing this whilst recruiting.
Apparently, not fair, and can lead to some sort of legal challenge??

I call BS, as we always do it here.

I guess she blew the the wrong thing, sounds like with guidance she would have corrected her choice.

Many companies ask for social media details and WILL check your posts; you are not legally obliged to provide the details, but not doing so obviously makes it look like you are hiding something.

Many also include contract T&Cs making social media posts about your work a reason to fire you if they show the company in a bad light, expose private data, or are just in bad taste.

What a shame I didnt take screenshots to show a random on the net :). I always protect myself when hiring and firing, I follow HR policy to the letter including not giving the real candidate feedback.
I also have professional indemnity insurance just in case I encounter a "snot fair" idiot. Although if its anything like the last chap I would welcome it as it was so funny.

Accused by a candidate of being racist as I didn't hire him as he was a muslim, yeah really racist mate, the guy I did hire was a Muslim just without the massive overconfidence and attitude problem of the first chap.
