Settling into the new normal? “Friending” employees on Social Networking Sites

Let’s face it. Social media is the “new normal”. And while there may be a few of us stubborn mules who have not embraced it, an overwhelming majority of people across many different demographics and generations have. There are so many ways the new normal impacts the workplace.

Many people share medical conditions, religious preferences, marital status and much more on social media. And while reading those engaging posts is seemingly harmless, the worst case scenario can be worse than you ever imagined. Tread lightly! With so many advances in society, best practices must constantly be reviewed and adjusted accordingly.
