One of the marvels of the modern technology is the social media and through then people have been able to reap many benefits such as in socializing, in the marketing of businesses and many other benefits. On the social media, the people can express themselves through different ways such as the use of texts, pictures and also the videos. You should have the consequences in mind of what will follow when you post anything on the social media while exercising your freedom. For the employees, it is important to watch what you post on your social media account as this may affect your job. There is etiquette that is associated with the social media. Below are some of the things that you should avoid posting on your social media account as an employee.
You should ensure that you do not post anything that concerns your salary or your finances on the social media when you are an employee of a given company. In most cases, nobody will feel comfortable with the amount that they earn for the job that they do. You should however not create a paystub drama on the social media by posting about the salary that you earn. Because the salary that people get is different, those who receive a lower salary than yours will start asking for a pay increase so that they can match yours. If you have issues with the salary that you get, you should consider talking to the human resource manager.
When you are an employee in a given company, you should avoid posting about the grievances that you have on the social media. In companies with many people working, you will not fail to be in bad terms with other workers and perhaps the employer. Such cases are common in jobs that we do. You should hence try to act with professionalism and don’t express your feelings on the social media.
Whatever you will post on the social media as an employee should be carefully thought about. As much as you are trying to express yourself on the social media, you need to ensure that you do not spoil your reputation. In this, it is important to ensure that you avoid posts that convey hatred, posts that are vulgar, posts that hurt others or even those which are sexist. This might change the perspective that the employer has about you.
