Networking sites such as Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter are a great way to connect and keep in touch with your friends, but it can also be a very easy way to leak unwanted information to a lot of people quickly. A waitor was recently fired from a high-end restaurant because he tweeted about a celebrity and his bosses learned of the tweet and immediately dismissed him. Facebook and Myspace are a little more intrusive with the feature of pictures. Friends can tag you in pictures and these pictures can go up and stay up with an employer immediately seeing it before you can un-tag them.
