A lot of my friends talk up Face Book. I see it as a slightly mature version of My Space, which I think is a tween gathering site (for tweens and pedos, sadly). Today I saw yet another reason FaceBook is bad.
from The WASHINGTON POST
For a while there this afternoon, President-elect Barack Obama's immensely talented chief speechwriter, 27-year-old Jon Favreau, might have been pondering how to address that question [about any items online that could be embarrassing].
That's when some interesting photos of a recent party he attended -- including one where he's dancing with a life-sized cardboard cut-out of secretary of state-designate Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, and another where he's placed his hand on the cardboard former first lady's chest while a friend is offering her lips a beer -- popped up on Face Book for about two hours. The photos were quickly taken down -- along with every other photo Favreau had of himself on the popular social networking site, save for one profile headshot.
By the way, as an executive recruiter, yes, I do look around MySpace and Face Book as well as Google for candidates I interview. My client need to know if they are hiring someone who may embarrass (or lighten up) the office.
