Personal Branding on FaceBook

Facebook is growing fast and as their list of users grows so does the list of people getting hired, fired, embarrassed and shunned.

Globally, as you can see there are vast opportunities on Facebook for personal branding but the opportunities for tainting your reputation or losing your job are even more vast. In fact, nearly 1 out of 10 employers globally now admit to firing employees because of their activities on Facebook [The actual number is much higher because many employers would never openly admit to doing this, even in a survey.]
