Dear Facebook...my job is crap!

First it was work bloggers who were threatened and sometimes sacked for revealing uncomfortable truths about the modern workplace.

However, it seems that the phenomenon of firing people for discussing work on-line has spread to social networking sites, such as Facebook.

Well, that was the story in The Telegraph yesterday, where a worker was sacked for branding work as boring when using Facebook.

It's impossible to know the finer details of such stories, but I would like to see the employer in question defend itself in such a situation, i.e. demonstrate that the job being branded wasn't boring.

Perhaps boring is a very modest word for the work of many millions of people in the UK.

To check the details for yourself see - Office worker sacked for branding work boring on Facebook.

Also, don't forget it's Work Your Proper Hours Day today!

I think freedom of expression is pretty much lacking.I would be waiting for the employer's defense too.Very nice post.

I will certainly be ensuring that my Facebook privacy options are tweaked to full! I can't believe that this kind of blasé statement should be taken so harshly by employers. Pathetic!
