    People should not post work issues on FB or other personal issues..although it makes for interesting reading. I mean some people even put information about being in rehab!! I treat FB as though anyone could read it. I don't post political or religious topics as I don't think FB is the place for it. I like FB to keep up with friends and relatives that I would not otherwise keep in contact with. It's too hard to call people on the phone because everyone is so busy these days. Much easier to email and use FB and then they can read at leisure.

    Ok,anyone using social media should be fully aware that they can't expect privacy. I would also wonder about many federal employees identifying where they work. Why open yourself up to that sort of fed-bashing that is the norm these days? I use social media, in a limited way, for fun, absolutely nothing to do with work. I don't identify my employer or even the type of work I do. But that being said, I'm a human being, and I have opinions. If I want to make a less than 100% flattering comment about my job or my boss, I believe I still have a right to do so, under the Constitution; I'm not identifying anyone or any agency by name. If my employer is trolling FB to check up on whether I said "I don't like my boss," I would call that a waste of funds. Certainly, I would never threaten my boss or a colleague or an official of any agency, or anyone. But I wouldn't do that in conversation, phone calls, emails, or anywhere, so FB or twitter would not be any different. You just don't make threats. But yes, I will express frustration and dissatisfaction, and I don't see anything wrong with that. I mean, we haven't yet passed laws in this country about "100% Happy Positivity Optimism, Only Smiling Allowed within these US Borders" yet, have we? How do we expect democracy to survive, if no one is ever allowed to express anything less than 100% My-Boss-And-Agency-Are-A-OK! sycophancy? Don't be stupid when discussing your work situation, but the day I'm told I'm going to lose my job over a generic "man, I hate my job, and I am sick of phone calls from my boss" comments on FB is the day I resign. I am not giving up my humanity. We should be worried about accepting Big Brother and censoring ourselves to make his job easier.

    Why do people think that they are so important that they have to let everybody know what they are doing every day of their being. Do they really think that people really care. I think not. Grow up folks.

    Why do you care if other people want to post running commentaries of their lives? Don't read it. You aren't the intended audience. Why do you waste your time wondering about the hobbies and interests of other people, interests and hobbies that happen to be different than your own? Get over yourself.

    I do not read them. I do not have a Facebook account. You miss the point entirely. Flesh and blood friends are important. Social media ones, not so much.
