I feel that employers should be able to look through an applicant’s social media profile. This may not be a popular opinion however; there is not much anyone can do to stop someone from looking at a person’s public page. If you put something on the internet then you should be prepared for anyone to see it. Your boss is a person and if they have access to your profile then there is no reason why they should not be able look at it. You should not be posting things that could get you into trouble in the first place. I am not personally connected to this topic nor do I know of anyone who has suffered the consequences of this topic.
I will use this information to benefit me in the future by not posting anything inappropriate on my social media profiles. I actually do not use any of mine really. I do not see the attraction to them. They are way more trouble than they are worth if you ask me. The only thing that I would change to prepare for the world of work is to delete the social media pages that I do not use like twitter, myspace, and instagram.
