Description: The democratization and usage of social media affects careers and hiring practices. Its use
blurs professional and personal lines of behavior; exposing employees and employers to
great risks. Technology captures digital expressions allowing employers to eavesdrop on employees. Likewise, inappropriate posts place employers at risk for civil liability claims and reputation damage. This session discusses how social networking affects public careers, legal limits on a public employer’s censorship capacity, and risk management by digital branding.
