Can your social media profile kill your job prospects?

Toby Young has resigned from the board of a new university regulator after more than a week of criticism over controversial comments he made on social media.
 
He is a journalist, his views are well known, but the comments he made on Twitter - even though they were deleted - were enough to sink his chances of staying in the job.

If a middle-aged public figure like Mr Young can be unseated by his online presence, how worried should the rest of us be?

Most employers will look at a person's online presence before even selection for interview - let alone the final appointment decision...

See Can your social media profile kill your job prospects? (Rebecca Mason, BBC News).
