Subomi said...

Invasion of privacy. Its wrong! The company can insist staff should not use their computers and company time for social network which is still not cool but monitoring your staff is taking it too far

Unknown said...

I don't think is right
It is the enployEe private life
Whis is not suppose to be invaded

Unknown said...

I don't think is right

It depends on how the coy operates n their standard. What u call social media could be used for other things that could harm the company. It's called being@ alert.

Bonita Bislam said...

They may as well monitor the activities in their bedrooms.People are smarter this days.They open accounts with pseudo names.

Unknown said...

Its not right... but its only a staff who cannot separate his or her career from private life that will have an issue eventually.

Brown bear said...

Worng worn worng that's their private life! The only time as a boss I check my staffs social media is when they pull a sicki and you know they are lying lol apart form that I think absultely not!!

Unknown said...

That is STALKING, and its definitely not right

kblyte said...

It's not right, as long it doesn't have anything to do with the company's image.

ary said...

Even if you work with the CIA, they have no right to monitor your social media accounts, they can read flag certain words but not outright monitoring! That's plain wrong, it is a gross invasion of privacy.

Unknown said...

It's not good. There should be privacy for the employee.

to me i don't think its ideal, but it depends on what the company does and if the company has to check then u may keep your privacy by not working wt them.
u may bear some funny names and your company will not know its you.lol

Princess G said...

If a crime is involve, yes. If otherwise NO

Unknown said...

Its bullshit. for what na

Anonymous said...

Yes. The purpose should be to monitor and curtail inappropriate use of the company's resources (internet access, computers and company time) for private use.

Unfortunately, a few people may see that as a "perk" that comes with the job but it qualifies to be deemed as theft (does this sound like calling corruption ordinary stealing?).

This ranks in the same category as taking company stationary (photocopying paper, pens, pencils etc home for the kids or personal schooling needs).

Unknown said...

Only if the company handle issues related to National security.

Where I work, we dont have access to internet on company system. We use our phone and tablet for browsing, so they don't have access to our social life

Dani said...

Yes because when you start working for a company you represent them and they become responsible for you any negative thing you say can be used against them

Unknown said...

No. It's not right for a company to monitor its staff social medeia activities. It amount to invading their privacy.

Many people in USA has got fired because b of what they post b on social media. Some companies review your profile online before hiring you. That's why it's not good to be or post a nuisance on social media.

Every employer will want to know if the bulk of their employees work time is actually spent working.

I say YES.

Ohumotu said...

Funny thing is late last year our manager informed us that we should cut down the rate at which we "consume" data in our office as this is making us spend more money on internet subscription.. which is funny because I'm using my desktop to send this right now. He even insisted that if it's not work-related i'e. returning or sending mails and everything we should hibernate our systems. LOL It's kind of annoying watching over your shoulder or closing your tabs when you feel your boss is coming

Chop Chop said...

Nope

Daily Miracle Prayer said...

No its not right. But if sb suggest that,it means they are suspecting sb that is trying cause a bridge in security.
